Creating spaces for families to thrive in
SPECIAL PROJECT - AVALON COLLABORATION
SPONSOR A UNIT
(as of 1/26/2021 all units have been sponsored)
Hickory Way units will be allocated to adults moving from a shelter, or the street, into stable housing. For many, it is the first time in a long time, that they will have a bed to sleep in and a roof over their heads. Avalon Housing case managers work with their clients during residency.
HouseN2Home can't do a project like this alone! We are asking for families, groups, or organizations to "SPONSOR A UNIT". This includes making a plan with your team (to include color schemes and themes), collecting or purchasing new or used items, storing the items, and then engaging in MOVE-IN DAY by physically moving the items into the units and placing them as you envisioned. Please see below for a floor plan as well as a wish list.
Phase I (34 units) of the construction completed in January 2021. The units are unoccupied, so move-in and decorating can occur safely with your team during the COVID-19 pandemic. Phase II (36 units) are estimated to be completed in Fall 2021.
While there will be no "REVEAL" for this project, our wish is that your team will learn about the challenges of homelessness in our community and connect with this issue in a deeply personal, meaningful way.
**HouseN2Home will be providing new bed frames, mattresses and dressers, as well as used couches, small kitchen tables and chairs.
Here is a helpful registry from target, with suggestions for new items.
