Mission Statement

The primary mission of Comfort House is to care for the children of Montopolis, where families confront poverty, unemployment, drugs, prostitution and violence every day. Comfort House provides a safe haven for many neighborhood children after school and on weekends. Comfort House provides meals, snacks, clean clothes, baths, new underwear and shoes, educational materials, outings and activities. In addition, many others are assisted on a case-by case basis. This aid includes delivering nutritious food to elderly residents, and helping teenagers and adults through temporary difficulties.

Description

For children, Comfort House provides food, clothing, baths, books, toys, and a safe place. Florence's affection and care for her kids is obvious to anyone who spends 5 minutes at Comfort House. She organizes outings, parties, and educationally enriching activities. Children also learn to give back by delivering food to elderly neighbors, caring for stray animals, or doing community service such as cleaning a local cemetery. Young mothers stop by for diapers and baby clothes. Florence often helps teens and young adults get a start on education, a job, or a place to live. Florence also maximizes the impact of Comfort House's efforts by effectively networking with local government, schools and other non-profits.
