Perry W. and Lou F. Britton
Family Center
The Britton -Fuller Family Center Program provides comprehensive transitional-type housing services to intact homeless families, specifically designed to return these families to self-sufficiency and more permanent housing in the shortest possible time. The facility can accommodate up to six (6) families, usually composed of no more than five (5) individuals each.
Men's Shelter
Foundation Repairs Complete
After a year long, two phase project, the foundation of the men’s shelter has been replaced. This enables the shelter to ensure that the building will remain viable for at least another five years, housing at least 12 men at a time as they seek work in the Greater Baytown area. This was a very expensive project for our shelter, totaling more than $20,000 over the two phases.
Hall’s Carpet Haus
Donates Flooring to Men’s Shelter
Local business and good friend of Bay Area Homeless Services, Hall’s Carpet Haus, has donated new kitchen flooring for the men’s shelter building. Mark and Nancy Hall, longtime supporters of the shelter, donated a new flooring product which has a reputation for being long-lasting, durable and easy to maintain. With the help of a cadre of volunteers the old flooring was removed and new flooring installed in one weekend.
BAHS Adds to Staff with Roving Intern
BAHS is pleased to add Bear E. Rover to our marketing staff as an unpaid intern. Recently relocated to the Baytown area, Bear E. will initially concentrate on strengthening his marketing skills by observing operations at the BAHS shelter buildings, and visiting the offices of our corporate donors and sponsors. Here, he is posing for his official ID card after finishing his computer skills test (which he bear-ly passed). If you see our intern at a local business, please drop us a line at edbahs@gmail.com. You never know where he will turn up, and seeing him could be an enriching experience.
