We first want to take the opportunity to send our sincerest gratitude for the amazing amount of donations that came in throughout the month of August. We saw a major increase in donations and each piece that has come through our door has made an impact in the life of someone who's recently experienced homelessness.
Find's support of the Housing First program is really in part to our wonderful community members who go out of their way to support us in this city wide goal of ending homelessness.
We appreciate the gift that donations bring and know that they will find good new HOMES with our Housing First participants.
Speaking of which, because of these great community gifts, Find was able to furnish 142 homes in August and support 203 people move out of homelessness and into a safe comfortable space that they can call home. 54 kiddos are starting school from their new home and there is no better news than that.
Please keep thinking of Find in the coming months as we always see an upward trend of housing requests as the weather starts to get cool. We process approximately 40 couches/love seats, dressers, tv stands and apartment sized kitchen tables a week to support Housing First and are always in need of these items.
Thank you again for your generosity and supporting in helping us end chronic homelessness together!
