2020 Friendship House

Mission Statement

Uniting people facing homelessness with loving, supportive communities they can call home.

About Friendship House, Inc.

Friendship House works with people who are experiencing homelessness, houselessness or both. Homelessness and houselessness are defined differently. Homelessness is the loss of community and houselessness is the loss of one’s physical residence. When someone loses their community and is experiencing homelessness, houselessness can be quick to follow. Someone can lose their residency suddenly, and then they may experience homelessness. Therefore, FH strives to ensure every person is ultimately connected to a loving supportive community in order to break the cycle of homelessness and houselessness.

Ensuring love and support are at the heart of all we do, we address houselessness and homelessness through our programs such as the Clothing Bank, Empowerment Centers, Code Purple, Financial Assistance, and Transitional Housing.

Friendship House relies on the generosity of the community to fund our programs. Because of you, we can continue to offer respect, compassion, grace, acceptance and love. Every dollar you help us raise through the Highmark Walk goes to our life-saving and life-changing programs.
