Ohio Valley District: The Welcome House
FedEx Ground volunteers from the Ohio Valley District straightened shelves at the Welcome House Shelter for MLK50. The Welcome House works to end homelessness, by offering a continuum of services to women and children, to take them from housing uncertainty to housing stability. They offer three main service areas, which include: housing, income and benefits, and service coordination. Since opening in 1982, they have expanded their services to not only encompass an emergency shelter, but to take a holistic approach in ending homelessness.
