Amity House is in dire need of a new "Fridge and a Freezer" as ours have broken down. These are critical to our ability to deliver many of our programs and to provide food to many of those who visit our center. Especially with the Christmas Season here and so many plans in place already. It is not a huge goal to raise the $2500 we need and we know with your help we can reach it. Any additional funds over and above our target will go to program delivery where our team specializes in making a little go a long way.
For those of you who do not know us, Dickinsfield Amity House is a (little known of) family resource center providing support services to our community since 1972. We offer a wide range of programs and services to individuals as well as families. Our programs are designed to fill gaps in community services, which help to build a sense of community and reduce social isolation.
Amity House runs strictly on donations and grants. Several of which are currently at risk due to the current economic state of our province and pending government cuts. These cuts could be devastating to our programming and our ability to support the families, children and individuals in our community that need us so much.
Here are some of the programs that we share with all who need them:
Collective Kitchens; Community Lunch; Drop In Cooking Club; Early Childhood Services; ELL Class; Family Support; Garden Club; Job Search Assistance; Outreach; Support Groups; Swap Shop; Teaching Tots; WeCan Food Co-op; and We also offer a week day Drop In Center that is open to the public with the newspaper to read, free coffee, tea and treats!
We thank you in advance for your contribution, or even for sharing this with others which can also make a huge difference.
The Amity House Team!
