For $1,500, a Nicholas House partner can sponsor a room at our shelter for one year, helping homeless families move forward on their journey toward self-sufficiency! A family’s stay at the shelter is typically between three to six months, but some stay for as long as a year. A family’s size can range from two, with a single parent and a child, up to a family as large as ten. Your sponsorship will help make an indelible impact during their time of transition, assuring that they receive the full benefits of Nicholas House’s comprehensive programs.
Your sponsorship helps Nicholas House provide families with:
- Individualized case management for both adults and children
- Bedding, toiletries, school supplies, uniforms and other essential items
- Classes for parents covering topics such as finances, parenting, and career development
- Youth programs including a free eight week summer camp, tutoring and an after-school program
- A warm, safe and nurturing environment covering basic needs allowing parents to focus on improving life and career skills and gaining employment
- Aftercare for up to 2 years after they graduate from Nicholas House programs
- Recognition of you or your company on Nicholas House’s website
- Recognition in the Nicholas House e-newsletter and/or Facebook
- A plaque at the entrance to your adopted room with your name and a short one-sentence narrative stating why supporting Nicholas House is important to you (optional)
- Knowledge that you are helping homeless families thrive and have a second chance
