Your Kindness Can Change A Life
Put a Leaf on the Friendship House Tree of Life
The construction costs for Friendship House, a transitional residence for people moving from homelessness back into a place of productivity in society, has already been provided. However, the cost of landscaping, the money-saving solar electrical generating system, the appliances (washer, and dryer or the laundry area, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave oven and hot water heater for the kitchen, are not yet covered. These costs add up to $33,000.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED & SERVE THE HOMELESS
Since homeless persons can be reluctant to leave the streets and accept emergency shelter or transitional housing, we operate transition centers — places where homeless youth or adults can get off the streets and find a temporary safe haven. And often, when homeless persons begin to trust drop-in center staff, they agree to leave the streets and enter transitional or permanent housing.
- Water – The summers are hot and bottled water is an essential need for survival
- Food – Transition center provides daily food
- Home – we provide housing assistance when needed.
- Care – Spending time and providing mentoring to those individuals we serve
Experiencing Homelessness or Food Insecurity?
Communities in the Verde Valley have many resources for the homeless and the hungry.
We build on each other’s ideas and skills. We believe the best results are gained by capitalizing on the team’s strengths and not on an individual’s talents alone. As individuals, we either lead or follow to achieve the best results for the organization and those we serve.
