Need an idea? Houses for Change

Houses for Change is an award-winning craft project for kids that provides an opportunity to answer the question, “What can I do to help?” It has been adopted by schools, congregations, the United Way and the YMCA. The program is simple: Students decorate a cardboard house (which we provide). Over a few weeks or a month, the box is filled with loose change. The school or congregation then makes a donation to Family Promise. For more information, contact or call (978) 922-0787
