The Serena House is a project being undertaken by 3 area agencies; Advantage Housing, Co-ordinated Assistance Ministries and the Crossing with a goal to house young women aged 18-25 who would otherwise have little or no security and stability in their lives. The house will have "House Parents" and a social worker to aid the young women in becoming self Sufficient. The Serena House is seeking donations in the form of room adoptions in order to stock and furnish the house.
While many rooms have been adopted the $1000 donation required for adoption does not cover all the needs of the kitchen. Club Fitness 24 by Powerhouse gym has stepped up to help fill the additional needs of the kitchen and we are asking our members and any area residents that can to step up and help us, help them.
The kitchen already has a stove, refrigerator, microwave, dish washer, and a small freezer. We are also planning to stock the pantry with basic nonperishable items. Anything you might have that would help get this kitchen up and running will be appreciated. If you can help please contact Helen Herrell, one of the personal trainers at the gym at (765) 864-0810 to take your donations of money, kitchen items, or food items.
