SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – The former Valley Drive Catholic Nuns’ Convent, Chadwick Residence, is a haven for homeless women and their children. The organization provides counseling, education and other services to help them get through any crisis that has changed their lives.
Homelessness has not worsened during the pandemic, thanks to eviction protections in place. However, homelessness is never the result of just one factor, and these other troubling factors have not gone away. The question remains: what happens when the ban on deportation ends?
The Chadwick Residence subsequently braces for an increase in homelessness due to the expected increase in evictions, displacing women from places they call home.
Chadwick relies on donations and volunteers. Its big fundraising event will take place on Friday, October 22 at Drumlins, where there will be a silent auction, raffles and food from the 1926 catering. It will also feature live music from Donna Colton and Sam Troublemaker . You can find out more and buy tickets here.
