Our ,multi-church "paint party" at Meriden's Women and Families Center in March kicked off a relationship with WFC's Transition-Aged Youth (TAY) program that has born fruit in a new partnership with Unity House. A hard-working ,ulti-church UMC team of volunteers prepared Unity House this week for the arrival of a young family with a working single parent this Friday. The family was referred to Unity House by WFC for safe housing during a time of transition to a new support program. They are expected to stay at Unity House for a week. We ask that you respect the family's privacy and confidentiality needs during this important period of transition for them.
Unity House has been preparing for the arrival this Fall of a refugee family, and so a lot had to be done to get Unity House "family ready" on very short notice. New flooring was ready in the kitchen, and much has been done over the past several months by volunteers from local United Methodist churches, and by student volunteers from from Choate Rosemary Hall. Finishing touches on painting, cleaning, caulking, installing screen windows, and generous donations of housewares, furniture, food, toiletries, linens, bedding, children'books and toys, wifi networking, and cleaning supplies, have turned Unity House from a project back into a live mission site! What a feat of grace in action!
Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who worked so hard to help this family needing safe housing - including StarCubs Childcare, who helped to arrange for care for the family's children while their parent is hard at work. Our prayers of gratitude and blessings are with you all, and lifted up to the God who inspires us to serve others as our God serves us - with radical hospitality, and everlasting love.
