Boys Home is a St. Nicholas Day Appeal Recipient!

unnamed-e1449759278816We are excited to announce that we were chosen as one of two recipients for this year’s St. Nicholas Day Appeal. Awarded annually by the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, this grant supports the mission and ministry of the Church and is entirely funded by donations from members of the Diocese.

The grant we received this year provided furnishings for our newly renovated Darling Cottage, which houses eight of our older boys and their two houseparents. The other recipient was a lunch program founded and hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church in Staunton.

Pictured below is some of the furniture purchased with the grant. We are very thankful to everyone who supported the St. Nicholas Day Appeal and very thankful to the Dioceses for blessing us as a recipient.

Jon’s mom was worried about him and the choices he was making. She was seeing his friends get hurt and mess up their lives and she didn’t want that for Jon. So she brought him to Boys Home.
