Looking Back at 2017

As we continue to shelter youngsters who are at critical stages in their development, our ability to recruit volunteers interested in spending time engaging children in enrichment activities is vital. Young mothers stressed by the uncertainty of homelessness and the need to find stable housing also benefit from the time others are willing to spend with children. An additional trend we continue to see is that for most sheltered mothers, their education level restricts their ability to find employment that offers a living wage. All this speaks to the ongoing need for our community’s support of homeless families. Interested in working with us on this issue? Contact Tracy, Shay or Jason at 518-434-2910. Involvement at any level makes an impact!
