April 3, 2017 – Berger Rental Communities has partnered with Friends Association located in West Chester, PA to sponsor a family to live rent free while they get back on their feet. Friends Association’s goal is to strengthen the community by helping the families they serve to find or maintain permanent housing and achieve stability and self-sufficiency.
For over 190 years, Friends Association has provided essential social services for children and families. For an impoverished family, an unexpected expense or a decrease in income can result in eviction and homelessness, so Friends Association offers many ways to support families like these. Programs such as their charity ball and annual cabaret raise money for homeless and near-homeless families in the community. Through their efforts, 85% of families who enter Friends Emergency Shelter move to stable housing when leaving the program.
Berger Rental Communities is proud to be a part of Friends Association’s efforts to help those in need. To learn more about the Friends Association, visit www.friendsassoc.org.
