July 2, 2010 at 4:07 pm Leave a comment

We look forward to launching our Shelter Party and Blessing Baskets programs at the Children’s Attention Home in Rock Hill, SC, and for homeless families served by the Samaritan House Night Shelter at the Salvation Army of Cabarrus County, as well as the Mothers & Children Housing Ministry in Concord, bringing us up to a total of 14 homeless facilities across a four-county region served by our incredible staff of dedicated volunteers.

York County, SC – The Children’s Attention Home is an emergency shelter and long-term residential facility for children who become homeless due to being victims of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. This 42-bed facility houses children and youth of all ages, from babies up to teens and young adults.  Birthday Blessings programs will begin in August with the delivery of Blessing Baskets for babies and birthday parties held on site at the Home, bringing positive emotional experiences to children experiencing the isolating effects of homelessness due to separation from parents.

Cabarrus County, NC – Birthday Blessings will begin serving the residents of the following Cabarrus County facilities in July, with monthly celebrations that lift spirits, boost confidence, and help support basic needs:   The Salvation Army Family Shelters program is designed to provide food and emergency or transitional housing families in need, and works with clients to help them transition into a more permanent housing situation. At Samaritan House Night Shelter, families find a comfortable place to stay with warm beds, meals, and services needed, in a safe and encouraging environment.   

The Mothers & Children Housing Ministry is an emergency and transitional housing program for mothers and children who have become homeless or are in eminent danger of being homeless.  The home is a safe place for families, a caring environment to grow in, an opportunity to regain stability, and offers the resources to become independent, all providing hope for the future.

We at Birthday Blessings believe every child’s life deserves to be recognized and celebrated, regardless of their circumstances, and we look forward to bringing joy and offering support to all of the children living at these facilities.

Stay tuned for more information on how you can get involved.
