Ashby House kicks off drive to buy house Discussion Presidential gifts topic of museum discussion ABILENE — A collector of presidential Christmas cards and memorabilia will discuss Thursday the different styles of presidential families^n a talk at the Eisenhower Library. Mary Seeley of Tampa, Fla., will present a gallery talk at 10 a.m. Thursday. She has collected the memorabilia since purchasing a portrait of George Washington in a red velour presentation folder — a gift from President Nixon and his wife to a White House employee. The exhibit "Seasons Greetings from the White House: The Collection of Presidential Christmas Cards, Messages and Gifts" recently opened at the museum and will be on display through Aug. 31. Visitors can see paintings, letters, gifts and Christmas cards that were given by presidents during the holidays. Seeley also has written a book by the same title, which is available at the museum gift shop. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (785) 263-4751. It would be renovated into longer-term housing for homeless families By CRISTINA JANNEY The Saiina Journal Ashby House officials kicked off a campaign Tuesday to raise 8250,000 for the purchase and repair of a Saiina apartment house to be used by homeless families. Ashby House is a nonprofit group started in 1991 to shelter homeless families and women. The organization operates a shel- _ '«._«_ ter at 150 S. . 10 IMP Eighth, which _ .^ » has a capacity TO donate for 14 people or monetary four families. Of in-kind The apart- services, ment building, call Ashby located across Houseat the street at 153 8264935 S. Eighth, will provide about 12 apartments for transitional housing for homeless families. The average stay in the Ashby House shelter is 25 to 30 days. Bryan Anderson, executive director, said that is often not enough time for families to gain the skills and financial resources they need to be self-sufficient "Transitional housing will give them time to get back on their feet and brought around to a point they can meet their goals and become self-sufficient," he said. Stays in transitional units will be 90 days initially but will depend on the needs of the families. Lack of education, mental illness, teen pregnancy and drug abuse tend to be common problems among shelter clients, Anderson said. Families living in the apartments will be able to continue to use life skills classes offered at the shelter on parenting, stress management, nutrition, budgeting and employment preparation classes. Families will pay from $65 to $210 a month plus some utilities for the apartments. Anderson said the program will emphasize responsibility but allow families to pay off debts and save for rent and utility deposits. "We strongly believe in personal responsibility. This is not a handout. We want to give families a ladder to climb to self-sufficiency," Anderson said. Ashby House serves about 80 families a year, and only about 3 percent of its clients become homeless again. The project has received 848,000 in pledges, including $10,000 from a grant from the Episcopal United Thanks Offering and $38,000 from board members. Fund-raisers hope to complete the purchase of the $180,000 building by the end of July. Another $70,000 will be needed for renovations. CARROL HAMILTON I Roofing Company Since 1962 Free Estimates.
