Today we’re highlighting another Windermere Foundation recipient on the Eastside working hard to support local families. The Harrington House provides transitional housing with supportive services to women, 18 years and older, who are pregnant and/or parenting and homeless. This grant will apply to expenses related to the delivery of case management services to pregnant and new mothers, including parenting skills, job or education placement, and mental and physical health treatment.
Residents of Harrington House may stay up to one year to allow for long-term stability, skill development, and long-lasting change. They meet weekly with the case manager to review their goals and progress. In addition, residents attend weekly parenting classes every Thursday to build the bond between mother and child. The women will work together to learn trust and will self-monitor each other as they learn new life skills and work on a transition to permanent housing.
Their approach to helping new mothers in difficult situations is truly inspiring. Thank you for all you do for these families, Harrington House!
