A Letter From The Executive Director
By: Maureen Atwell, Executive Director on Sep 4, 2020
As we look forward to the coming months, Hebron Housing Services has much to celebrate. With help from our community, we increased our capacity to shelter more homeless families and individuals than ever before during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we continued implementing new services for our guests when other organizations were forced to close their doors.
Looking ahead, we have much to be excited about. On September 1, our offices moved to a new location in Waukesha County. In searching for suitable space at a lower cost, our new landlord, Duane Reed, owner of Quail Crossroads LLC, contributed with favorable rent and a build-out of a conference room for board and community meetings.
This new space allows us to use our resources previously needed for higher rent to be focused on our mission. In addition, case management will expand to provide more hours and better accessibility with guests now able to meet one-on-one with case managers in our shelters rather than our office. This expansion in services provides more intensive guidance and support to help our guests achieve long-term stability and self-sufficiency.
The move also allows us to operate our Siena House men’s shelter on a 24-hour basis on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Great things are happening at Hebron Housing Services because of your support. Whether it is financially or through other means, please know that you are making a difference in the lives of others.
