Utilizing additional flex funds received through a Department of Housing and Community Development grant, we were able to put together care packages for individuals and families residing at our state-aided properties: Congregate House, Seibel Apartments, and 705s scattered sites.

Care packages included comfort items such as blankets, tea, crossword puzzles, journals, as well as wipes, hand sanitizer, first aid kits, and flashlights. All were very grateful for the delivery and were encouraged to reach out to resident services if there is anything they should need.
