Addressing Housing & Homelessness with Beacon
Mayflower has partnered with Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative to build Creekside Commons, to advocate for affordable housing at the Capitol, and to volunteer with families in shelter at local congregations. Contact Susan Lampe (advocacy) or Alix Magner (shelter volunteering).
Mayflower members devote time, talent and resources to support projects and on-going programs at Creekside Commons to achieve the following objectives:
- Create a secure and stable home environment within which Creekside Commons residents can continue to build and strengthen a workable foundation for their lives.
- Build connectedness between Creekside Commons residents and their surrounding communities, such that they create a strong sense of belonging.
- Empower residents to seek, locate and leverage the resources available to support them in living a full and joyful life.
Come and Learn (Formerly Homework Helpers)
Tuesday and Thursday evenings
Come and Learn is a chance for members and friends of Mayflower to provide academic help for our neighbors at Creekside Commons. Using activities (meaningful play, worksheets, knitting, origami, etc) Come and Learn will provide opportunities for learning and student engagement. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity to get to know our neighbors contact Deb Peterson.
