The holidays are in full swing here at Harford Family House and we have been overwhelmed with the thoughtful support from community members looking to give back to our families with children experiencing homelessness by providing them a festive holiday experience. We are SO THANKFUL to all of our supporters who answered our call to help provide normalcy for those in need. During this time of year, we always like to remind our community that homelessness is not a way of life, it’s a phase of life.
Many families are experiencing homelessness simply because they’ve hit a rough patch in life. We’ve walked through our halls, taken peeks into each of our offices to look at the gifts waiting to be cheerfully torn open and we’re reminded of what it must be like not to have a place to call home for the holidays. Can you imagine not having a warm bed to wake up in on Christmas morning with no presents for your children to open or not having any food to feed your family throughout the holiday season? It’s surely hard for us to do…
As we head toward the New Year, we ask you to imagine BRIGHT FUTURES with us at Harford Family House and imagine what we can do, together with your support, to help them come to fruition in this upcoming year. 2019 will be a big one for us. A celebration of our 30th Anniversary, in fact, and we are so excited to take part in this experience with you!
To start your New Year off right, consider giving a gift to support our programs and services, or signing up to help plan one of our signature events like Ahoy! Cocktails by the Bay, Home Runs for the Homeless, or our third installment of Boots & Bowties – a birthday bash in honor of our anniversary. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact us today. Wishing you and your family a joyous holiday season!
