Charity & Community
“to whom much is given much is expected”– Luke 12:48
Employee Benefit Advisors is pleased to announce we selected Sheridan House Family Ministries, www.sheridanhouse.org, as our corporate beneficiary. As such EBA is donating a portion of our revenue on a monthly basis to support SHFM.
Sheridan House was established in 1968 as a home for boys with behavioral issues. Since then, the Sheridan House Residential Program has grown from one home caring for 8 boys to five homes caring for almost 135 middle-school aged boys and girls each year.
In addition to the fore mentioned, today the vision has expanded to create a social services division for single parents who are currently experiencing a serious short term economic need.
Annually, Sheridan House provides over 4,000 single mothers with food, basic living resources, automobiles, and individualized and intensive training sessions in areas such as: finances, parenting, resume preparation and interviewing skills, meal planning and more.
The next challenge for SHFM is to expand the residential care program by building additional children’s homes, vocational assistance and a day care facility in an effort to provide single mothers a means of having a “fresh start” as they put their lives back together.
