A Thank You From the South End Children’s Cafe

Dear Friends at the Albany Housing Authority,

2017 was an amazing year for the South End Children’s Cafe.

Thanks to you, and your ongoing support, belief in the program and dedication to the children, we were able to celebrate serving over 14,600 meals in just two years!

And especially thanks to you, we moved into our new space at 25 Warren Street, Albany. Since opening on December 4 to the children, we have served over 1,000 meals already. Your support from the beginning of planning for this has been unbelievable, and I am so grateful to all of you and your staff for everything!

We have created a slideshow to show our appreciation to you for all you have done. Please enjoy your slideshow HERE.

Please come by sometime for dinner (we eat at 5) or a visit to see your kindness in action. Happy 2018! May you have as much joy and happiness in your life as you bring to so many others.


Tracie Killar

Director, South End Children’s Cafe

A Word from the Homeless Action Committee

Volunteer to Help the Homeless

The Homeless Action Committee operates an Outreach Van program which makes rounds on the streets of Albany to places where homeless people congregate. An Outreach Van volunteer would assist individuals with basic needs as well as transportation to area resources or other human services organizations. The police, hospitals and other agencies will often call the Outreach Van to provide transportation for individuals to shelters or motels for the night.

The hours are between 2-10PM every day of the week. During the winter, on Code Blue nights, the hours are until 12AM.

Volunteers for the Outreach Van must be able to work with individuals with active alcohol/substance abuse issues, have good judgment, be responsible, reliable and have a good knowledge of crisis intervention techniques.

We are looking for volunteers to make at least a 2-3 hour weekly commitment. Excellent writing and organizational skills are a must. Volunteers must be motivated, patient and willing to help those who are vulnerable.
This is a great opportunity to assist others who are in greatly in need. Please reply with a cover letter and resume.

***You may e-mail cover letter and resume to hacvan@verizon.net OR you may also fax your info to (518) 462-5839.
