We believe in providing support services to our residents to build a foundation of stability, safety and empowerment. Having support services in place on a property gives our residents additional strength and security when dealing with life’s challenges.
In other words, Housing with a Heart
Visit from Santa
December was a busy month for our Service Coordinator at Logan Terrace Apartments in Logan, Ohio. She worked with Out of the Boat Ministries to get commodity boxes and coats delivered for residents as well as Operation Santa and members of Revelatorz Benefit Riders to throw the residents of Logan Manor a Christmas party.
Children who attended the Christmas party all received a gift from Santa and were also able to get their pictures taken with St. Nick. Everyone enjoyed the wide variety of drinks and goodies on hand. Merry Christmas 2018!
A Place to Dream
The QBC Manager at Azalea Park in Summerville, SC worked with the Summerville Family YMCA on their Togetherhood “A Place to Dream’ Project to get new beds delivered to the resident children. From The YMCA website:
“The Y’s Togetherhood program connects people from all backgrounds to plan and carry out volunteer projects that address a real need in their community.
Going to bed at night in a clean, comfortable bed is something we take for granted. Our community has many wonderful social service agencies helping low-income families obtain housing. Few of these families are able to turn that house into a home. Many residents sleep on the floor, air mattresses, sofas or crowded into a bed with numerous family members. The Summerville Family YMCA wants to help children in this situation get the sleep they need.
We believe by providing children the opportunity to sleep in a real bed of their own will create a ripple effect in their lives and our community – better concentration leading to better performance in school, that could lead to more opportunities as they get older, helping to launch themselves out of poverty and break the cycle.”
