We have some exciting news here at Eden House! This Spring, three of our residents will be graduating from our two-year program. Each resident will be moving into her own apartment and will need furniture and other items to make her new place feel like home. Our donors play an important role in helping residents with each step of their journey in recovery, including their transition out of our program and into a new life. Below is a list of items that all three of our graduates will need, along with personal statements from each resident:
Graduation Date: Mid-June
In preparation for her graduation, this resident has been looking back on her experiences at Eden House and all she has learned while here. She said that the most important lesson she learned at Eden House was finding out who she is and who she wants to be in the future-- an empowered, healthy woman who is excited about being an advocate for people. Before coming to Eden House, she sustained a painful back injury, making activities like vacuuming and mopping very difficult for her. Her special request for her new home is a Roomba vacuum cleaner, so that she can do her chores without hunching over.
Graduation Date: Early July
This resident is most looking forward to graduation because she will be reunited with her two children. Her son and daughter will be moving to New Orleans to live with her and go to school in the area. Her requests for her new home revolve around furniture for her children. She is specifically looking for bed sets and dressers that would look nice in the same room, as they will be sharing one. She is also a big fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide and would love an Alabama “A” for her new front door!
If you are interested in providing any of these items for our residents, contact Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org. As graduation rapidly approaches, we could not be more thankful for donors like you; every gift makes an impact on the lives of our soon-to-be graduates. Moving into a new home is always a difficult process, but for our residents it marks a crucial transition in their lives. Thank you for your continued support of Eden House!
