Our Residents at Chesley Street love doing crafts, playing games, and having fun! Unfortunately, funding for these activities is limited and we haven't always been able to provide people with the supplies or tools needed to engage in these activities. Thanks to the organizational vision of our new Executive Director, Nancy Egner, Fellowship Housing plans to create a fully stocked Game Room filled with books, board games, adult coloring books, crafting supplies, and more! However, we are relying on donations such as yours to raise a portion of the money necessary to purchase these items and create the exciting and cozy Game Room we have envisioned!
Participating in leisure activities with other people has been proven to facilitate positive social skills, decrease anxiety, grow creative problem solving skills, and improve quality of life. Here at Fellowship Housing, our mission is to provide safe, decent, affordable housing to residents of the community living with severe and persistent mental illness, but we also believe in rehabilitation and community integration and feel that those goals are essential to the vision of the organization. Providing the opportunities needed by our residents who require the most support to improve their social and recreational skills is something we feel strongly about, and with your help we hope to raise the money needed to accomplish these goals. Even a small contribution will help make a big difference, so THANK YOU for your continuing support!
Just a few weeks ago, our residents carved spooktacular jack o' lanterns to display in the large picture window of their communal living room! The money you raise during this campaign will go towards activities such as this.
