This Thursday morning The South Perry Blog is visiting Interfaith Hospitality (608 S. Richard Allen Court, #5) from 7 to 10 a.m. - please come by and say hello. As always there's a stack of free papers to be handed out and shared.
Interfaith Hospitality is a homeless shelter for children and their families and it's been around since 1997. It's the faith community's response to the needs of homeless families. The organization is supported by 12 host congregations and 18 churches that provide meals and other services. Families are at the churches from 5:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. and then brought to the day center during the day. The ultimate goal is to find a permanent home for the family.
Also on the blog agenda tomorrow: are there any active neighborhood block watch folks on or around South Perry? Please let me know so I can share your work and contact information on the blog. Looking forward to meeting some South Perry neighbors tomorrow morning.
