“It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.” Irish Proverb
I'm pleased to announce that I have been given the honor of joining the St. Francis Shelter's Board of Directors. As a Realtor I spend each day helping individuals and families find the perfect home. It is a blessing to now take part in helping the homeless find safe shelter and eventually permanent and affordable housing.
No parent should have to put their children to bed in the back of a cold car in an abandoned parking lot or get them ready for school in a McDonald’s bathroom.
St. Francis Shelter is one of the only family shelters left in Salem. Over 90% of their families move into permanent housing. The families they serve show incredible resilience and commitment to improving their lives. I can’t think of a better investment of my time and resources than to help struggling families become active contributing members of our community. It’s an incredible organization and I'm thrilled to be a very small part of it.
