Friends United to Shelter the Indigent, Oppressed and Needy was founded in 1993 by Peggy LaPorte together with a small group of women. After raising money for two years they were able to purchase the first one-bedroom condominium. Providing housing was their mission so that women and children could have a safe, secure environment as they work toward self-sufficiency. They now operate 10 condos, three single-family homes, a duplex and a fourplex all as part of this mission to serve homeless families. In total, they have helped move nearly 200 families out of homelessness and into a self-sufficient and productive life.
