Tying Together the Comfort for Teens

One in seven children run away before they age of eighteen. They feel the need to run because of a unsafe household or unable to cope with family situations. When runaways have no where to go or no one to help them undergo their circumstances this is where the Huckleberry House steps in. The Huckleberry House provides a safe place for teens and young families who are dealing with abuse, violence, addiction or homelessness. The Huck House has numerous different services for different circumstances. For ones who need a cool off from their family and time to think the Huck House allows ages 12-17 to come in arms open. They give them a temporary place to stay, meals and counseling to get professional help and opinion on the situation at home.  For the older teenagers who are struggling to find a home the Huck House has an 18 month program that helps the young adults gains skills and confidence to live on their own. They help the young adults find permanent housing and prepare for adulthood. For families struggling and people between the age of 12-22 they have a counseling program. They talk with the families to figure how how to fix their situation at home in any part of their life like school and work as well.  And when you can't come to the Huck House the Huck House will come to you! They have street-based counseling and case mangement program to help discover support and resources for the ones in need. As my service project for National Honors Society, I have chosen to create blankets for the Huckleberry House. I cannot imagine the feeling of not feeling safe in your own home or not having a home at all. I want the kids at the Huckleberry house to know that we care! I want to give them a form of comfort that there are people right by their side. I am creating twin size blankets that are cut around the border and tied in knots. In order to create them I am asking for donations to help buy the fabric, anything will help even a share. I am also having a blanket drop off where you can donate fabric around the size of 41 x 60 blanket fabric or any old blankets you do not use anymore.  If you are wanting to donate fabric or old blankets instead we will have a box outside of my front porch for drop offs, you can text me at (614) 800-1470 and I can send you the address. I also have cashapp $Redbabyj or venomo @Danielle-Rosebrough-1. Thank you!
