We recently celebrated the completion of a major collaborative project to improve the quality of life for residents of Becky’s House, IW’s permanent supportive housing program for senior women with disabilities. I can barely contain my enthusiasm because I feel this project is an almost perfect synthesis of the key things that make IW’s programs unique and successful.
Interfaith Works is committed to addressing the specific needs of each client/resident with dignity and respect, providing innovative and individualized solutions with the support of many community partners.
This project fits that ideal to a “T.” The new upgrades at Becky’s House will provide each resident with enhanced personal spaces and a private setting to meet one-on-one with IW staff. The project is only possible because of the strong relationships IW has with many supportive partners, including congregations and individuals. And finally, the project underscores IW’s commitment to innovation. Becky’s House, a house in a residential neighborhood, is unique. It was created as an innovative response to the specific needs of senior women who have experienced an extended period of homelessness in their lives. It provides the eight residents with a homelike atmosphere in a welcoming setting that meets their special needs.
Stay tuned! We look forward to sharing the story of how it came together, the before/after shots and, most importantly, the positive impacts on Becky’s House residents.
