New Year’s Resolutions

The start of the year tends to be a time of goal setting and resolution making. Gyms fill up, new diets trend, and alcohol sales go down in support of “Dry January.” January 1st is an easy target for goal setting because people need inspiration to start something new – a “clean line” between who you were and who you want to be. Even though we are happy to say goodbye to 2021, this new year started off challenging. It seems difficult to make any other resolution than to find a way to live with COVID in our lives. At the same time, we need personal goals to find hope in a better tomorrow. Goals that help us be better versions of ourselves. However, when you are at your own personal bottom, sometimes the only goal is to get out of bed that day. Or maybe it is to scrape enough together to pay one of four overdue bills. Or even to just get through the day. We understand for those experiencing homelessness goals are required so they can stay focused and centered when everything around them feels like it’s spiraling out of control. They need hope in a better tomorrow.
There are many changes in 2022 for Friendship House – but for anyone who comes to us for help, our number one goal remains the same: ensure every person feels respect, compassion, grace, acceptance, and love as they journey back towards a loving, supportive community they can call home. 
January 1st may be a clean line for many; however, at FH, every day is a clean line for all those we serve. We are committed to being a safe place of renewal every day.
