Imagine you are transitioning out of homelessness and moving into Arbora Court. You feel a sense of security using your new key to unlock your apartment and then locking your door behind you. Once inside, you walk into your living room where a couch invites you to sit and relax. You turn around and see a matching set of dishes on your kitchen table – not a plastic cafeteria tray or a brown paper sack. Next you notice a brand new set of pots and pans on the stove, and you can’t wait to make your favorite soup – a simple comfort you’ve missed for a long time. Then you walk down the hall and the colorful shower curtain hanging in the bathroom catches your eye. Lastly, you walk into your bedroom and lay down on a bed covered in a soft blanket and plush pillows. You can already tell that you will sleep soundly here, knowing you have a safe home.
This is the experience Bellwether Housing wants for people transitioning out of homelessness and into Arbora Court. Forty formerly homeless households will move in over the coming months, and we want them to feel a warm welcome by walking into fully furnished and outfitted apartments.
You can help our new residents experience the comforts of home.
There are several ways to help out:
· You can make a donation towards furnishings or home essentials.
· You can go out and purchase items based on the lists we've created.
Whether you can outfit an entire apartment or buy a set of sheets, you can help bring the comforts of home to families exiting homelessness and moving into Arbora Court.
