Bombas

Socks are the #1 requested item by homeless shelters. Bombas set out on a mission to donate 1 million pairs of socks to shelters. IPH was lucky enough to receive nearly 2,000 pairs of brand new socks for our guests.

Danielle’s House $10k Match

Danielle’s House, an IPH Program in Amsterdam, is kicking off a $10k Match fundraiser to help us continue renovations to the shelter.

Thanks to the generosity of the Neena Rao Charitable Corporation, all donations made to our campaign for Danielle’s House will be matched up to $10,000. With the matching program, every dollar raised will have double the impact!

You can help IPH finish the renovations to make Danielle’s House feel like home for our guests. Help us to kick off our matching campaign by donating to: http://www.firstgiving.com/iph/10KMatchforDaniellesHouse

An older three-story building on E. Main Street in Amsterdam houses the programs of Danielle’s House. It serves our programs and guests well but is in need of maintenance and improvements. This summer, during the off-season, IPH began repairs.

With a modest $20,000 budget, IPH has replaced the roof, upgraded the furnace, and installed a new hot water heater, blinds, doors, and locks. New furniture was donated for a comfortable shared living room. The staff team is working quickly to finish flooring, paint, and windows before the emergency shelter opens in November, so guests who arrive at the door feel welcome and at home.

Now, there is extensive work to be done to the exterior of the building. Years of neglect have caused the soffits, wood moldings, and porches to deteriorate. Repairs to fix the damage and clean the brick are necessary and costly.

We need your help to fund the project. IPH is kicking off a fundraising campaign to finish the work.

Backpack Day marked the end of the Summer Youth Program. Children gathered in the park weekdays for free lunches, activities, and a chance to cool off.  Thank you to all of our partners throughout the summer who brought fun activities, healthy lunches, and informative groups to our program.
