Gifts for previously homeless and mentally ill
Organized by: Barbara (Anna) Moore
I am Anna. I am currently living in a non profit apartment. All who reside here has to have a history of mental ahealth issues, ranging from mild to severe. We are very grateful for our 'blessing from God'. Since I have lived her I have tried to enrich the lives of my neighbors through planning and created all events here. We know have bingo, a peer to peer group, BBQ's, Christmas dinner, organizing Thanksgiving dinner with assistance, outings to movies, the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. I also created a birthday card process for every resident, which includes various residents and staff signatures. Last year I created a 'Christmas' bingo. It was very much enjoyed. So far I financed last years 'Christmas' bingo and unfortunately this year I am unable to come up with the funds to do it again this year due to medical issues. I'm asking for help to fund this years Christmas bingo. Will you please help these people who have worked so hard to better themselves through regular psychiatric appointments, recovery from addiction and off the streets? This event helps to build confidence, joy, feeling cared about and social skills.
