#DemocratsCare: House of Ruth Gifts for Families
Many of you may already be familiar with our Ward 6 neighbor, the House of Ruth.
Founded in 1976, the House of Ruth empowers women, children, and families to rebuild their lives and heal from trauma, abuse, and homelessness by providing wrap-around care, which includes enriched housing, trauma-informed day care, free counseling, and individualized support. (You can learn more about their history and mission here.)
Every Christmas, House of Ruth provides every person they serve with two gifts. Because of the pandemic, this year, they're doing that through the medium of a Target Wish List.
Their main need at this point is various types of bedding. The Ward 6 Dems' goal is to see if we can make all those wishes come true by their deadline of Wednesday, December 15.
