Forest Oak Apartments Volunteers At Local Women’s Shelter
April 5, 2014
The Forest Oak Apartments staff and residents visited the Women’s Assessment Center in Rockville, MD on Thursday, April 3rd. This is an emergency shelter with 65 beds that serves approximately 300 women per year. Case managers work with women to facilitate recovery and stability as well as to connect them with housing, medical,mental health and social services.
Signs were displayed throughout our community asking for contributions from our residents and staff from the list we were given of the items most needed. The Forest Oak community was able to deliver the shelter 4 full boxes of supplies. Because the drive was so successful, Forest Oak is starting a new campaign to collect clothing for the shelter.
