The Campaign for the Elizabeth Stone House
After forty years of service, the Elizabeth Stone House needs an integrated, supportive housing and community-based service complex for the individuals, families and neighborhoods we serve. The Elizabeth Stone House currently serves 500 homeless or at-risk individuals each year, an increasing number that still does not meet community demand. A new Stone House will almost double the number of at-risk families housed and quadruple the number of neighborhood families helped.
That leaves $4 million where we need your help. You hold the key to transforming thousands of lives.
A new home means:
- Accessible, affordable housing with support services for all residents.
- Greatly expanded access to support groups, classes, education and job training resources for both residents and community-based clients
- Appropriate space and high-quality care for traumatized children
- Interim childcare for families waiting for full-time openings
The chart below illustrates how the new Elizabeth Stone House will be able to increase the number of clients we currently serve.
