Every time we get to say those words to a homeless youth, Catholic Family Services has changed a life. We have worked with that youth to find a safe and stable place to live . . . and they are no longer couch-hopping or living on the streets. It’s a major achievement. But a house is just that — a house — unless we are able to provide that youth with all the comforts and supplies that make a house a home.
That’s where you have the power to help us change a life! Our Welcome Home Project provides an opportunity for groups in the community to come alongside a newly housed youth and provide that youth with kitchen, bathroom, and housekeeping supplies.
The impact? Not only does the youth have the supplies to keep their home clean and safe, but they also feel the love and support of a caring community as they continue on the path to self-sufficiency. It’s a meaningful way for you to build a positive future for a youth in need.
If you’d like to help, we invite you to call Jeannine Boehm at 269-381-1234 and check out our list of needed supplies by clicking here. This list provides suggestions of the types of items these youth so desperately need and we will work with you to make this a successful project! You can truly turn a new house into a safe and comfortable home for youth!
