We are in the midst of a major fundraising effort to expand and improve our programs and facilities, so that those we serve can return to their communities better-prepared for life’s challenges, and less likely to return to incarceration.
Residential Women’s Program $100,000
Women make up a larger and larger percentage of incarcerated felons. We want to provide them with services similar to the ones we provide for men but tailored to their own tough circumstances.
Licensed Counselor $70,000
We have an excellent staff, but we need to hire a counselor licensed to provide therapy for our residents on site.
Upgraded HVAC . $20,000
Our HVAC units are so old that we can no longer get parts for repair. We want to replace units when they fail with more energy efficient units.
Workout Room $20,000
Our residents need to work on maintaining healthy bodies. A workout room is the number one request from residents when asked how Gemeinschaft Home might be improved.
Therapy Garden $10,000
The benefits of being outdoors and working with nature are well documented. Gardening conveys a sense of responsibility, brings out nurturing instincts, and builds patience while it soothes.
