Shurrun’s House Sober Living Homes (SHSL) provide faith-based transitional housing to economically disadvantaged women in Dallas, Texas. Women who enter the homes have access to fully furnished rooms that serve as a drug-free haven when transitioning from the criminal justice system, behavioral healthcare, or drug and alcohol abuse treatment center. Residents in the home experience a supportive environment to get the tools and resources necessary for readjusting back into society.
SHSL welcomed many donated items such as school supplies, toys, craft materials, masks, clothes, and baby products for their community, thanks to a donation from Amazon and Amazon FBA Donations Program in partnership with Good360. SHSL residents include pregnant women or women with small children. Thanks to this contribution, mothers dressed their babies in new clothes and stuffed their diaper bags with wipes, bibs, and toys. These items are of critical importance to the families they serve because they work with women who either work minimum wage jobs or are unemployed during the pandemic. One of the pregnant women has received something new every week thanks to the program, including a crib, a toddler bed, wipes, diapers, medicine, clothes, bottles, a walker, and toys to prepare for her new child’s arrival.
These donations allow young mothers to better prepare for the arrival of their newborns while also acclimating back into the community.
