November is HomeAid America’s Homelessness Awareness Month. This year, BATC-Housing First Minnesota’s Young Professionals Committee is partnering with BATC-Housing First Minnesota/HomeAid Twin Cities to collect donations to create Welcome Home Kits for Avivo.
Please bring the following items to the Member Buck Auction on Nov. 15 or to the BATC-Housing First Minnesota office before the event for extra 2018 Member Bucks.
This spring, the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation/HomeAid Twin Cities renovated eight apartment units for Avivo with build partners Soderberg Apartment Specialists, The Kingdom Builders and Crystal Kitchen and Bath.
The Avivo apartment complex is home to women and their children who participate in Avivo’s family treatment program. Housing is critical for mothers to focus on recovery, go back to school, and find employment. The major renovations to these apartments will provide a better quality of living to help Avivo’s women and children achieve their goals of life-long wellness and success. These Welcome Home Kits help families moving out of a shelter and into their own home feel welcome.
Watch the recap of phase two of the apartment remodel below and see what an impact this project will have on residents lives for years to come.
If you’d like to donate to help Avivo, we’re accepting donations NOW through the Member Buck Auction on Nov. 15. Drop off your donations at the BATC-Housing First Minnesota office or bring them with you to the Member Buck Auction. Plus, when your bring in donations, you’ll receive additional Member Bucks to big on some great items at the auction!
