Children, Relationships, Housing

The Advocates offers a safe place to live for people in unsafe situations. We provide all the basics they need when they are living in shelter, including: food, housing, bedding, clothing and other essentials such as soap, shampoo, etc. Join us in “adopting” an Advocates family. We will come into your classroom and talk about the things a family might need in shelter. As a class, we will work to come up with some of these needed items. We will also talk about the brand new apartments that we are building. When it is finished, we will offer 12 transitional housing apartments for families in the valley. Your class will have the opportunity to come see the new building in the process of being built if you would like.
