NEW PHOEBE HOUSE
Donations collected through Elizabeth Essentials will support the Family Resiliency & Reunification program at New Phoebe House Association – a transitional home for mothers affected by chemical dependency and homelessness who want to reunify with their children. The Family Resiliency & Reunification program surrounds the women and children with support, programming, and case management for up to two years. As the women are assured their day-to-day needs for food; shelter; referrals for medical, mental health, and dental care; and clothing assistance are met, they can focus on remaining clean and sober, developing job skills, gaining education, becoming financially literate, building a resource network, and increasing parenting skills. Programming and childcare curricula cover topics and information relevant to the women and children to help break the patterns of abuse, violence, and neglect so many of the women and children have experienced throughout their lives.
