The Partnership Finds Their New Address
The Partnership experienced a lot of change in the last year, including moving to a new location right on the edge of NC State! Thanks to Pullen Baptist Church’s vacancy in their property at 112 Cox Avenue. The Partnership has been able to expand their space. “Our bigger space allows for our growing team, a staff that has increased from 3 to 13 in the last 12 months.” said Executive Director Kim Crawford.
This move was made easier with a little help from our friends at The Green Chair Project, who provided essential office furnishings. The Green Chair Project has long been an ally of the work at The Partnership. “We have provided over 5,000 households with essential furnishings since beginning the project nearly 10 years ago,” said Jackie Craig, Executive Director of The Green Chair Project, a non-profit that provides furniture to individuals and families moving from homelessness to their new address. “The Green Chair Project is able to furnish homes with the support of community members donating their gently-used home furnishings paired with nonprofits and social service agencies, like The Partnership, that refer those who are beginning again after facing the challenges of homelessness “continued Craig.
The new address allows for The Partnership staff to begin returning to office once COVID-19 vaccinations are complete. Staff is currently working remote to help reduce the virus spread. “Being able to work together in the same space with our fellow colleagues offers not just camaraderie but will allow for streamlining the provision of resources and opportunities to our community and neighbors experiencing homelessness” noted Crawford.
