Partner for Change
Apartment Sponsors not only open the door to TLC’s Lindsey House, but they also provide support, encouragement, and connection during a family’s stay. Each Lindsey House apartment is adopted by a church, Sunday School class, civic club, business, or a group of friends and family. Sponsors remodel and furnish the apartment, and stock the apartment with one week’s worth of food.
During a family’s stay at Lindsey House, sponsors have the opportunity to welcome the family to their new home, receive a quarterly update on their progress, and interact with the family at events such as our Christmas party. At different times we will ask sponsors to help with items such as backpacks for school and a basket at Thanksgiving. The sponsor also assists with ongoing minor repairs or small apartment related needs that arise.
After successfully completing program requirements, a family may need some help setting up their new, permanent home. They are able to take certain things from the apartment with them such as sheets, pots and pans, and kitchen utensils. The sponsor would then replace the items and prepare the apartment for the next family! Most sponsors refurbish and update apartments once or twice a year.
If sponsoring an apartment is something you would like to do, but need an opportunity to sponsor at a lower level, those opportunities are available as well! Items that can be sponsored are:
- Move in groceries for a new family
- Beds and bedding
- Much, much more!
