All proceeds from this event will fund the JLSB’s New Member Project for the renovation of the children’s library and program room at Transition House. “Transition House is dedicated to the solution of family homelessness in the Santa Barbara community. Capable and motivated families with children are offered respectful, non-sectarian residential services and the life skills needed to alleviate their poverty, and to restore self-sufficiency and dignity.” Since its beginnings, over 10,000 parents and children have received direct relief from Transition House. According to the National Center of Family Homelessness, an estimated 1 out of 45 children are homeless in a year. Children experiencing homelessness suffer from hunger, poor physical and emotional health, and missed educational opportunities.
There are other ways to contribute! Purchase much needed items from the Amazon Wishlist at http://tinyurl.com/JLSBwishlist. Donate money to outfit, update, and maintain the Transition House children’s library and program room through GoFundMe.com (http://www.gofundme.com/JLSB-Transition-House) or by mailing a check (payable to JLSB with the memo “New Member Project”) to 229 E. Victoria St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
