Saranam runs a two-year program that allows families to stay in a home while receiving training and education to achieve long-term stability. “For us, it’s really important to show our families when they first move in with us, how important they are and to really honor them as a family and part of that, is to give them a beautifully furnished, fully furnished apartment,” said Tracy Weaver, executive director at Saranam.

The 35 mattresses will furnish ten apartments for families in need.
