Attention Adath Members!
The Women of Adath and Hesed are sponsoring a fundraiser to help the homeless. Hennepin County social workers are currently working on placing homeless individuals in stable housing. Many of these people have experienced chronic homelessness for over six months and lack any of the basic necessities. As you can imagine, individuals who have been homeless for a long time have few belongings. Starting over, they often lack the resources to purchase essential items needed when moving into a new place. These items include things like: towels, bed linens, shower curtains, and pots and pans. It has been found that providing these items to individuals when they move in helps them feel ‘at home,’ and reduces the chances of them ending up back on the streets.
