Drueding Center is a transitional home for women aged 18-24 who have young children. Outside of our Childcare Center, we have a garden that we are looking for volunteers to help out in. The produce grown will go to the Drueding Green Light Pantry, which supports women at the Drueding Center, as well as the local community, with healthy foods and fresh produce.

No experience needed! Tasks include:

-Watering the garden in the morning 2-3x a week, as needed

-Weeding, as needed

-Harvesting towards the end of the season

-Upkeep the general appearance of the garden

Mission Statement

The mission of the Drueding Center, as an integral part of the Holy Redeemer Health System, is to "Care Comfort and Heal." The Statement of Purpose developed by the management and staff of Drueding Center states: "We must ensure that all of our families have the skills and resources necessary to live independently and reach their individual measures of success."

Description

The Sisters of the Holy Redeemer established Drueding Center in 1987 to provide transitional housing services for homeless women and their children. To date, more than 550 women with 1200 children have benefited from our services. Drueding Center (DC) provides its residents with a comprehensive schedule of on-site services including: intensive case management, life skills training, assistance in finding permanent and secure housing, full-day licensed Childcare with Head Start services and an After School program, Clinical Counseling programs for children and mothers, and Education and Employment services through our adult and child learning centers, including a Youth Services Program for children ages 8-13 and an on-site health clinic. After Care services are provided for any former residents (graduate families) of Drueding Center up to 7 years post residence at our facility.
