Spook-tober is now behind us and we are well on our way into November with some big housing goals.
Before we get into that, let's talk about what we were able to accomplish in October.
In order to house as many people as possible, we have upped our daily numbers of homes furnished from 6-7 to 9-10 every day! We brought on a third truck to help us with the load and we have a lot of very happy participants that got to spend Halloween trick or treating with their families in their new neighborhoods.
Before we announce the number of units furnished and people helped, we want to take the opportunity to talk about our amazing partner agencies who are working tirelessly to find spaces for folks transitioning out of homelessness and helping them get the necessities they need to to fully embrace their new journey. THANK YOU housing workers! We would have no homes to furnish if it wasn't for your incredible dedication and commitment to the participants.
And now, without further ado... In October, Find was able to furnish a total of 141 homes for individuals and families moving out of homelessness through Housing First and help a total of 153 people. 61 kiddos got a safe space to trick or treat from this October.
With our new goals in mind, we will be in need of your support more than ever.
If you or someone you know has good preloved furniture that we can use for Housing First, please consider Find for your donation.
Items we need the most of:
-Apartment sized dinning sets
For a full list of what we accept as donations, please head to the donation tab on our website.
Everyone deserves a safe, warm space to call their own. Together, we can provide that!
Let's end homelessness together, Edmonton!
