Grants to help victims of domestic abuse find housing

MILFORD, PA — If you run a Pike nonprofit that works with victims of domestic abuse or sexual violence, housing assistance grants are available.

The Greater Pike Community Foundation is accepting grant applications on behalf of the Safe Haven Legacy Fund. 

“Permanent housing is a critical ingredient in helping survivors and their families be successful and independent,” said Jenni Hamill, Greater Pike’s executive director. “Particularly now, when our area is facing a shortage of affordable housing options, this program could make the difference in the lives of families trying to get back on their feet. I strongly urge any organization with expertise in domestic violence, or with providing housing—or both—to apply right away.”

Applications are due October 15.

For more information, contact Hamill  at 570/832-4686, email jennihamill@greaterpike.org, or visit Facebook at GreaterPike.

Knights Order motorcycle club, Knights of Columbus, help with Hope Farm harvest

LOCH SHELDRAKE, NY — A dozen volunteers rode up on motorcycles to help Hope Farm with its annual fall harvest.

The bikers were from the Knights Order Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club. They were assisted by the Knights of Columbus from Monticello’s Church of St. Peter and by people from New Hope Community.

The volunteers spent the afternoon picking vegetables at the three-acre organic farm, which is operated by New Hope Community and is located on the grounds of SUNY Sullivan.

The group harvested 211 pounds of potatoes and picked 70 pounds of peppers.

Hope Farm is a cooperative project between New Hope and the college. New Hope residents plant, grow and harvest more than 11,000 pounds of fresh, organic produce each year. The food is used in New Hope Community’s residential homes, by the college’s culinary arts students, and is donated to community nutrition programs and food pantries, the better to combat food insecurity.

Retired Monroe, NY, detective David Lee, a member of the Knights Order in Orange County, coordinated the event in honor of his son David Joshua, who lives at New Hope. “Helping out at the farm is a really good cause, and I am proud that the Knights Order can honor my son with this day of service,” he said. “We have a great group of people in the club, and are always looking for a way to give back to people in the community.”  

Farm associate Anthony, a New Hope resident who has worked on the farm from the beginning, said, “We could use the extra help and we thank the Knights for everything.”
