Helping the Homeless in 2018

Thank you for all your support in helping 336 neighbors in the panhandle find emergency shelter or prevent their eviction in 2018, including
159 children, 177 adults, 9 veterans and 30 disabled. We are particularly grateful for all our partner organizations and committed volunteers that work with FCCH us to make this happen. A huge Thank You to our generous funders: Ecolabs, Eastern WV Community Foundation and United Way and The Woods Golf Associations many generous churches, donors and committed partners. This year we are particularly grateful for our expanded partnership with the Regional Resource Connection that has helped many of our neighbors avoid eviction.
