Peas Help

IPH purchases food from the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York to serve more than 60,000 meals to its clients each year. The Adopt-A-Program stretches the food-buying power of IPH—for every $1 contributed to the Regional Food Bank Adopt-A-Program in IPH’s name, IPH will receive $10 worth of food to serve its guests. Donations are accepted to the Adopt-A-Program throughout the year.

During the month of October, PRA matched funds donated in IPH’s name through the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York from October 16 to November 3, 2017. To double the impact of your donation, visit the Regional Foodbank of Northeastern New York’s  Donation Form, select Adopt-A-Program, and enter 188ES or Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless to complete your donation. After following these steps, funds will be added to IPH’s account.

PRA is proud to partner with IPH during this year’s Food Bank Adopt-A-Program and to strengthen PRA and IPH’s longstanding relationship. CEO Pam Robbins notes, “We are so willing to partner with IPH as we have seen what a difference IPH can make in the life of someone needing a helping hand.  I hope our match will encourage folks to contribute to those in need.”

Capital Campaign

Campaign for Community Connections

The transformation is astounding. Where there was once blight, there is now housing, a community garden, and a café. It started with IPH’s renovation of the current Emergency shelter in 2004. Then, IPH built permanent housing across the street in 2008. This commitment to the block has motivated two other housing groups to invest in this corridor, making the area feel safe and a place residents are proud to call home.

Now there is an opportunity to do more. Spurred by program growth and community needs, IPH is investing in Upper Sheridan – a step to strengthen community and lead to another improved landscape.

The former St. Casimir’s Convent at 317 Sheridan Ave was purchased and will be renovated to house IPH’s popular Health and Wellness Program. IPH plans to provide nearly 2,000 visits for free health services to approximately 550 individuals a year. This care includes general physical exams, basic first aid, disease screening and testing, illness management, and monthly health workshops.

The former St. Casimir’s School at 315 Sheridan Ave will house many of the programs and services of the Drop-In Center. The expansive basement and first floor will be the new home to Community Connections. This space will allow expansion for employment services, clothing pantry, a daily hot meal, laundry machines, lockers, shower facilities, life skills classes, and an interfaith reflection room. The second floor classrooms will be renovated to become five one-bedroom apartments.

These new spaces also open IPH to collaborations with Poverello Health, Catholic Charities food pantry, and an Albany Police Department Neighborhood Engagement Unit satellite office.

A Capital Campaign is underway for this extensive project. $4.6 million of the $5.8 million has been raised to date through grants and community partners. The physical buildings tell the story of the neighbors who live there. By investing in the corridor, IPH encourages others to do the same and gives residents pride in their community as well as access to vital services.
