April has been a busy month at Find and we are so grateful for the amazing support we've gotten from the community to help moving families and individuals out of homelessness through the Housing First program into their new safe, comfortable homes.
As we continue to navigate life through a pandemic, we know how important home is and that home means safety for a lot of people.
We are honored to be able to provide comfort in that safety with donations from our community members and all those who support us in a myriad of ways.
Find is proud to announce that in April we were able to furnish 126 homes with community donations and help 193 people (138 adults and 55 kids) move out of homelessness and into a comfortable space through Housing First.
As the months go on, we continue to struggle with inventory levels of love seats, light couches, apartment sized kitchen tables and dressers. They are the most needed items for Housing First and the items we tend to go through very quickly. If you or someone you know has unused/unwanted items in good condition, please consider donating to Find for folks moving out of homelessness. Items can be dropped off any time during regular business hours at 5120 122 street in the parking lot near the tent or you can call for a free pick up for any of the items listed above at 780 988 1717. Please note that pick up times are approximately 2 weeks.
This work really does take a community and we thank each and every one of you that has assisted in helping us help those who need it most. From the Housing Workers to our donors, our customers and our community, together we make such a difference each month in the lives of so many vulnerable Edmontonians.
Thank you, Edmonton, for supporting our most vulnerable neighbors and fostering a community of love and support when we need it most.
