As My Friend’s Place supports more young people moving into housing, we’re excited to continue building our volunteer project, the Welcome Home Helpers! When our youth transition off the streets and into permanent housing, many are lacking the basic necessities to set up a comfortable space to call their own. From sheets and towels to pillows and placemats, our Welcome Home Helpers assist our youth in turning a house into a home.
So how does it work? We’ll provide you or your group (be it friends, colleagues or social acquaintances) a wish list of home items needed for one of our youth. Tackle the shopping list as you see fit, and then we’ll deliver the Welcome Home package to the young person upon move in. It’s that simple!
If you’d like to join our Welcome Home Helpers project and improve the chances for our youths’ success and comfort as they move into housing, please contact Rachel Sanchez, Volunteer and Community Engagement Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 323-908-0011 x.109.
