Holiday Edition 2020
The Community Service Newsletter
Atlantic Housing Foundation wants to wish everyone a very happy holiday season! From East to West and North Pole to South, we send our very best to you and yours this season. In December, our focus was on giving back to our residents and communities through local campaigns such as Operation Blue Santa, Safe Haven Shelter, and the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program, among others. Resident Service Coordinators were as busy as elves finding out the needs for their community and helping to meet those needs. Santa even showed up at Stonebriar Village, showed off some dance moves, and gave out toys to good girls and boys. We hope you enjoy this edition of the Community Services Newsletter that shows all of the joy and the cheer the Resident Service Coordinators spread from year to year!
