Give a gift for children
dragonfly village for homeless individuals and families
Dragonfly Village and Community Center is sponsored by Amity Foundation in cooperation with a host of donors, funders and other contributors. Dragonfly is extra special for children. We know that restoring families will help ensure that society will spend less on welfare, foster care, medical care, incarceration and other services that drain local, state and federal budgets.
We are dedicated to serving families and individuals with significant and multiple barriers to housing, education, and employment. Our organization has a proven track record of success with people who are fleeing or attempting to flee trauma and violence or other dangerous life threatening situations.
Residents will be engaged and offered services to benefit their housing transition into permanent housing; increase their ability to maintain their household and finances; perform activities of daily living and uphold terms of their lease; prevent lease violations; intervene in and mitigate crisis situations; maximize residents’ safety and security; build community among residents; and prevent evictions.
