Project Elf and SOMFAM together have been instrumental in establishing thriving homes for a multitude of families. Most of these families are coming directly from homeless shelters and have very little. Their most immediate needs are housing, however, they face a host of other challenges and that’s where Project Elf/SOMFAM seeks to connect them with additional resources throughout the year as they develop the skills to maintain their new lives. 

Project Elf/SOMFAM would like to create stability in an unstable world of poverty. I invite you to become a catalyst for change by creating a long-term relationship with this project and consider how you can play a role for the next few years.  

One of the most difficult parts of poverty is that resources and services that were available one year are often not available the next. With a longer timeline of support, Project Elf/SOMFAM will be able to apply your gift for consistent financial support to and for these families all year round.

The photos illustrating our story are from last December's Project Elf home.  The team swoops in early in the morning, after the family has left for the day, and we completely clean, furnish and set up their new home as a surprise to the family, then quietly leave the scene so the family can discover their new surroundings in private.  It takes a lot of teamwork and resources to create this magic, and your financial help allows us to become the magicians.

Once the family is settled into their new home, ongoing help is needed to allow them to learn how to remain stable in their new surroundings and new life.
