The Friends Program is extremely grateful for a $2,500 gift from Keystone Management in support of our Emergency Housing program. Since 1980, the Friends Program has operated this emergency shelter for families, providing 24-hour, seven-day-a-week staffing. Friends Emergency Housing provides intensive, community-based case management and short-term housing. The goal of the program is to help homeless families get into affordable housing of their own. Keystone Management has been a longstanding partner in these efforts. In 2007, Keystone demonstrated real leadership in Concord's efforts to fight homelessness by helping us establish our Transitional Housing Program. Once they qualify for the program, clients can begin to live independently while still receiving case management support from Friends counselors.
The Friends Program is grateful for Keystone's longterm support of our efforts to strengthen communities by building relationships that empower people, encourage community service, and restore faith in the human spirit.
