HIS Shelter WebsiteFamily Shelter Renovation:  The Need:  $56,00

The Family Shelter is an emergency residence that provides short-term (up to 90 days) of crisis housing to homeless families.  It accommodates 20 families at a time.  Clients attend seminars on budgeting, parenting, and other life skills subjects as they move toward self-sufficiency.  They save 80% of their income and receive case management.  The building was built in 1914 and the floors need to be replaced.  A contribution of any size will help.

 

children-image-for-giving-prioritiesChildren’s Center Scholarships:  The Need:  $100,000

The Children’s Center fills the educational gap for our smallest clients and gives parents the peace of mind to focus on school or finding a job.  Without the program, parents would not have the opportunity to enroll in school or to secure employment.  The Center offers licensed daycare, preschool, and after school care programs for up to 80 infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children at a time.  The Center provides snacks, meals, care, and education.  To enroll a child, parent(s) must attend school, look for work, or be employed.  Your funds will be used for scholarships for the children.  None of the families can afford full price, which is $132 for one week, $500 for one month, $6,000 for one year.  Every child must be subsidized to attend.  Donate Now to support this project.

 

all-building-giving-prioritiesAccelerated Learning & Living Program:  The Need:  $288,000

The Accelerated Learning & Living Program (A.L.L.) offers transitional housing and job development for 12-to-18 months in an affordable, independent-living apartment for 24 families.  Adult family members must be in school earning a degree or vocational certificate, or receiving work-related training.  While residing in ALL, residents meet with a case manager, attend life skills seminars, and receive help to locate permanent housing.  Donor funds would be used to pay college tuition, books, fees, transportation, and to help them transition to their own apartment once they graduate from the program.  A contribution of any size will help.  Donate Now to support this project.
