The final stage for many Mission men’s journeys from homelessness to independence is a stay at Lambert House, the Mission’s 24-bed residential facility. Living at Lambert House helps a resident transition from the high-accountability, low-privacy world of the shelter into learning to take responsible care of himself.
We began renovating Lambert House with a $55,000 investment in materials and labor from Coca-Cola Consolidated—replacing the roof, removing old carpets and making some critical repairs. Then COVID-19 hit.
To promote the best health for all Mission residents, we moved those shelter residents with essential jobs into Lambert House. Suddenly, the Lambert House building was at capacity—but not up to the challenge. Since COVID-19 is no longer a temporary situation, we need to raise emergency funds to make the following essential repairs:
The Lambert House also requires furnishings and decoration to make a proper home for our program graduates. The Mission plans to invest in durable commercial-grade furniture that will also provide an appealing living environment.
Do you have a heart for Lambert House? Please let us know if you can help provide any of these materials or even the labor to install them. The house will also need rugs, pot and pans, bedding and all the other comforts of home. Contact Rev. Deborah Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any ideas or suggestions.
