Join the High 5/Give 5 Team

During the fall, many volunteers -- including student athletes from our local high schools and Rivier University -- make the Front Door Agency's annual High 5/Give 5 campaign a priority.  By donating just two hours of their time, they know they can help many families to receive supportive services and housing stability.  Our dedicated volunteers are happy to knock on doors to help spread the word of how the Front Door Agency provides a hand-up to those in need. Please join the team and consider donating just $5. Any gift is appreciated and makes an impact!

The Impact of Your Gift: Family Moves From Shelter to Forever Home

Our client Heather never imagined that she and her daughters would end up in a homeless shelter. Heather was a single mother working full-time -- but with no child support or state assistance, it was a constant struggle to buy food, plus pay rent, heat, electricity and child care. 

When Heather lost her job, her finances quickly spiraled downward and before too long, her family was evicted from their apartment and ended up in a shelter. She felt defeated and uncertain about where to turn and her girls (ages 7 and 10) were scared about their future. After two months in the shelter, Heather was accepted into the Front Door Agency's Transformational Housing Program. 

Front Door Agency Offers a Hand-Up Opportunity

Slowly, with the help of her case manager, she began to rebuild her life. She took classes in budgeting and financing and she earned more college credits. "I can hardly describe what this Program has done for our family," she says today. Heather is once again working full-time and this fall her family will move into a new Habitat for Humanity Home. "Thank you to everyone who has made our 'forever home' possible!"
