Family Service receives donation through Fox & Roach/Trident Charities

Family Service recently received a donation for the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter from the Yardley office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, Realtors through Fox & Roach/Trident Charities.

Since its inception in 1995, Fox & Roach Charities has contributed more than $6 million through office-fund donations and board of trustee grants to more than 250 local community organizations in the Tri-State area.

Unique to Fox & Roach Charities, the offices and departments not only contribute to the charity fund, they also recommend which organizations in their community receive donations.

The Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter, a program of Family Service, is open 24/7 and serves approximately 75 people at any given time.

Typically one-third of the residents are children.

On-site services include case management, counseling, budgeting, job search resources and health evaluations.

Last year alone, Family Service helped 495 people at the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter, 172 of which were children under the age of 18.

Contributions such as this one help ensure that the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter remains open for those who need it.

If you are or someone you know is homeless or experiencing a housing crisis, call the Bucks County Housing Link at 1-800-810-4434 or visit www.fsabc.org/shelter.
