Family House Adolescent Shelter
949 Creek Locks Road, Rosendale
Family House needs volunteers to assist in creating a new garden: clearing overgrowth on a slope that leads to a flat clearing; the clearing effort needs more equipment and brawn, and the gardening area needs prepping and fencing. The effort would also benefit from a volunteer or two committing a couple of hours once a week to help keep the garden up. This time would be done with the clients as a Recreation group. Contact Cynthia at 338-5953. More info.
