ABCs at Friends Emergency Housing (August 2018)

Apartments ~ Bathrooms ~ Congratulations

At the Friends Emergency Housing Program shelter for homeless families we cleaned up the water damage from an upstairs bathroom and rebuilt the rooms affected which interrupted our ability to operate at capacity for a short period of time. We are back to full occupancy however several families are at the stage in the process where they are able to search for affordable apartments; big congratulations to them on such a life-changing accomplishment!

The primary bathroom project, that started before the other bathroom overflowed, continues and we are actively seeking volunteers to help us complete this beneficial and much needed project. Shelter residents benefited from back-to-school donations of back packs, lunch boxes, and school supplies for the children and cooking/nutrition classes for the adults.

To all the businesses and individuals who help make this possible ~ through grants, donated time and materials, Wish List items, food, and more from Lincoln Financial, People’s United, SMP Architecture, Grace Capital Church to name a few ~ we thank you for your support!

If you are interested in volunteering, would like to drop off donated items, or to inquire about availability at our shelter, call us at 603-228-1462.
