Homewarming Kits for our Homeless Friends

In conjunction with our 150th Anniversary, First Presbyterian is partnering with other communities of faith to make “homewarming kits”—starter kits for people moving out of homelessness into studio apartments.  

This project, led by Pamela Atkinson and in partnership with local homeless shelter providers, will provide over 150 kits for families moving into homes.
