Why The Faine House?
Due to the public health crisis, all fundraising events for The Faine House through June 2020 have been canceled. But we need you now more than ever. We rely on our events to cover basic operating expenses for the Faine House program — please consider donating online now to help Central Florida’s young adults.
Our residents are coping – but they are experiencing job losses and uncertainties — The Faine House is their steady source of support and stability amidst turmoil. We are strong, and we will continue to serve our young adults, empowering them to reach their full potential!
A Message from Jeff Faine
Right now, the young adults we serve at the Faine House continue to rely on us. With strength and resilience, together, they are all doing well and sheltering in place at The Faine House. Those who are enrolled in school continue with their education online as it is available. As many business have closed due to the pandemic, many of those we serve have lost employment.
This weekend marks what would have been the Faine House’s 10th annual gala – our annual fundraising event which provides a bulk of the funds required to operate the Faine House and the services these young adults rely upon. These operating funds cover expenses like food for residents, scholarships for homeless youth that do not receive state assistance, transportation, and essential staff salaries (needed to assist with monitoring the home and providing support for residents), among many other ongoing needs.
While we have every intention to reschedule the gala, due to the uncertainties surrounding the public health crisis, we don’t know when that will happen. And we continue to look for ways to continue to meet the needs of the young men and women we serve.
Our Faine House community is one built upon strength, unity and resilience, and in these difficult times, we know we will come together for each other and for our residents.
Currently, the immediate needs, beyond regular operating expenses, are:
Amazon Wish List of items for Faine House residents: This list has items to help break up the day, provide activities, crafts and reading material to keep everyone busy, as well as treats to fill care packages and Easter baskets for every resident.
Meal Train: Organized for food delivery scheduled twice a week – Sunday and Wednesday.
