Friends Lend a Hand


The Friends serve to commit their resources and time to further the mission of Avondale House. Member dues are used to fund school parties, and to purchase supplies and/or equipment for the agency. Members can participate, if they wish, as volunteers in the planning and implementation of fundraisers, field trips and direct-service opportunities with the students. Some contributions provided by Friends’ dues include:

– School parties throughout the year
– SMART Board technology in classrooms
– A digital camera to capture clients in action
– An agency minivan for taking clients to medical appointments
– An emergency generator for one of Avondale’s residential group homes
