About Our Guests / Guest Eligibility
Our guests are families who are experiencing homelessness. All guests understand that the Anne-Marie House is a clean, dry and sober place to live. An initial drug and alcohol screening will be performed before a family is accepted into our program. Also a criminal records check is done. Our guests are expected to participate in community life, respecting other guests, and to take on housekeeping chores.
Guests can live at the Anne-Marie House up to two years. During this time they are guided by a family action plan that is intended to enable them to achieve housing independence. Birthdays are celebrated as well as the major holidays. When it is time to move to independent housing, we celebrate.
To ensure there is a safe and secure environment provided for all guests, volunteers are at the Anne-Marie House around the clock. Volunteers provide meals, sort donations, provide contacts for our guests, and provide maintenance of our facility. Volunteers support the work of the Network Director and are valuable resources in times of celebration and fund raising events. Our Board of Trustees are people dedicated to oversight and planning our program. Learn
