Anything to help those in need is greatly appreciated, needed

By Staff | Apr 7, 2020

We all know that shelter is one of the requirements for survival. And in the words of the Florida Housing Coalition, “Housing is Healthcare.” For our 150 neighbors on Sanibel who live in Community Housing and Resources’ affordable housing, these difficult times mean that their income has been reduced and, in many instances, eliminated. To date, 16 households have asked CHR for additional assistance. We are aware of other of our families who are struggling during this time. No one will be evicted from their CHR home, but we need your help.

From all of us at CHR, and our extended CHR family, we ask that if you are able to make donations to help your neighbors at this time, please contact Melissa Rice at Melissa.Rice@sanibelchr.org or donations can be mailed directly to CHR at 2401 Library Way, Sanibel FL 33957. Anything you can do to help those in need during this period is greatly appreciated and needed.

Stephen Brown is board president of Sanibel’s Community Housing and Resources.
