Allen Chapter Ultimate Gift: Samaritan Inn and Family Promise

The YMSL Allen, TX Chapter served two organizations that support homeless people and families in Collin County. We served Samaritan Inn in McKinney, TX and Family Promise in Lucas, TX.  Two Saturdays of work at Samaritan Inn took place for our moms and boys to install a wrought iron fence to enclose their dog kennel area. Families who are homeless are often unable to bring their pets with them when they find new shelter. Samaritan Inn has their own climate controlled dog kennel, but the outside play area for the dogs wasn’t enclosed. Our YMSL volunteers tirelessly installed a beautiful, quality iron fence to enclose the play area. The boys dug holes, poured concrete, made cuts to the fencing panels and did an incredible job installing the fence. We also installed a doggie waste station. Now the residents have a wonderful area to visit while their dogs run and play in a safe area. We also purchased a new storage shed for the Inn and our young men and moms built amazing wood entrance ramps for the new shed and two other storage sheds. We built and outfitted the new shed with quality lofts and a tool row to hang tools.

 

Another weekend was spent a Family Promise of Collin County.  Family Promise serves homeless families of Collin County with children by providing shelter, food and support services.  We worked at their day center, where their members come to network so they can prepare to be on their own.  Our boys and moms removed rooms of carpeting and tile and painted baseboards to prepare for another organization to install new flooring throughout the center.  Our boys did a great job so that we could deliver on time, allowing for the center to stay on schedule.

 

These endeavors are having an incredible impact on the residents and employees at Samaritan Inn and Family Promise. Moms and boys worked tirelessly and many learned new skills and enjoyed serving our community.

Samaritan Inn has their own climate controlled dog kennel, but the outside play area for the dogs wasn’t enclosed. Our YMSL volunteers tirelessly installed a beautiful, quality iron fence to enclose the play area. The boys dug holes, poured concrete, made cuts to the fencing panels and did an incredible job installing the fence. We also installed a doggie waste station. Now the residents have a wonderful area to visit while their dogs run and play in a safe area. We also purchased a new storage shed for the Inn and our young men and moms built amazing wood entrance ramps for the new shed and two other storage sheds. We built and outfitted the new shed with quality lofts and a tool row to hang tools.

 

Another weekend was spent a Family Promise of Collin County.  Family Promise serves homeless families of Collin County with children by providing shelter, food and support services.  We worked at their day center, where their members come to network so they can prepare to be on their own.  Our boys and moms removed rooms of carpeting and tile and painted baseboards to prepare for another organization to install new flooring throughout the center.  Our boys did a great job so that we could deliver on time, allowing for the center to stay on schedule.

 

These endeavors are having an incredible impact on the residents and employees at Samaritan Inn and Family Promise. Moms and boys worked tirelessly and many learned new skills and enjoyed serving our community.
