Our Community Partnerships

Neighbor to Neighbor Partners

  • Groups participating in this program take “ownership” of an apartment by painting and furnishing it, and providing that homey touch. A plaque denoting this sponsorship is placed near the doorway to the apartment.
  • Volunteers are identified within the group to serve as mom and child advocates for the family, working one on one with the mother and the children to support, and encourage the family during their stay. These volunteers will be screened and participate in an advocate training session conducted by Drake House staff.
  • While in residence the sponsor team may assist with gathering items the family may need. Sponsoring the family for Christmas is a favored duty of the sponsoring team.
  • During the family’s transition the group assists the family with move out which may include gathering used furniture and household items for the family’s new home. The group then readies the apartment for the next Drake House family.
  • Sponsorship also includes providing a monthly financial commitment to assist with utility costs, insurance, maintenance  and other costs associated with the apartment.
