The mission of Ashby House is to empower homeless families and individuals, and to improve self-sufficiency, self-advocacy and holistic recovery. Ashby House assists and prevents homeless situations for families and women by providing basic needs: education, cogitative efficiency, health education, homeless advocacy and community awareness.
Participants will help with various tasks, including but not limited to, organizing and sorting donations, assisting with classes, preparing for special events, basic yard work, gardening, facilities maintenance, leading cleanup and other activities.
The best part of the trip was that instead of working with just one organization, we worked with different organizations every day like Emmanuel Baptist Church, Boys and Girls Club, Humane Society, etc...“Giving back to society” was just a phrase for me until ASB made me realize the true meaning of that.
