RAIHN Rotation and Updates
Our next RAIHN rotation will be August 16 to August 22. We partner with New Hope and Eastside to support the families for that week. We will be providing some food, disposable dish-wear and gift cards to cover the cost of meals. If you would like to contribute some simple grocery items or a Wegmans or Walmart a gift card, sign up through Sign up Genius. If you have any questions, please let Jeanne Proctor know. Items may be dropped off at New Hope, 62 Union Street, on Sat. 8/15: 9 - 11 AM, and Sunday, 8/16: 2 - 4 PM Someone will be in a vehicle to collect donations. If those times are inconvenient, one of our team can pick up cards from Artisan no later than that Sunday afternoon.
12 people, four families, are currently being served through RAIHN’s program at a motel in Greece. Food and shelter are being provided. RAIHN also contributes to other families with food, rent assistance, and securing housing. Two families will move into their own homes this week.
A total of 48 families (community-wide) have been assisted with funding for eviction prevention or security deposits through the Prevention & Rehousing Program thus far in 2020 (compared to a total of 47 for the entire year of 2019).
If you haven't been involved with RAIHN and would like to learn more or get involved plan to attend a Virtual Volunteer Training through Family Promise.
