IMPORTANT - HEAD START - FOR WEDNESDAY February 2, 2016

To all ACHR Head Start Parents

The weather forecast says we may have strong storms (heavy wind & rain) in the area tomorrow (Wednesday 2/3) early in the morning (when buses would be running). As you know, if there is bad weather, we will run buses late after the weather begins to clear or maybe not at all.  

The centers will be open, and we will accept your children (as late as 9:00 a.m.) if you bring them.

CURRENT NEWS 

ENERGY ASSISTANCE

We have HEATING funds and are open for the season.  The Auburn office has moved.  We are now at 950 Shelton Mill Road (the old City Church).

Even when appointments are fully booked, if someone cancels, an appointment will open.

As long as we have funds, the appointment scheduler will be open the last week of each month so people can make appointments for the next month.

Residents of Lee County can make (or change) an appointment by either

        clicking http://achr.cascheduler.com and then following the instructions OR

        calling (334) 246-5266 and following the instructions. 

IN-KIND CHANGES FOR NOW -

As many of you know, until recently we had a truck with a lift that we used to transport in-kind and also other items.  Currently that truck is not working, and because it will be an expensive repair, it won't be for awhile.

As a result, we cannot pick up in-kind from homes.  We also cannot accept in-kind deliveries at our Auburn location because often we cannot then transport it.

Donors are welcome to bring donations to our Sunshine Shop (301 Avenue E -- behind Darden Center on 601 S. 4th) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00. 

We appreciate your patience, and very much appreciate your donations.

CALLS ABOUT VACANCIES IN OUR LOW INCOME APARTMENT COMPLEXES

We frequently receive calls about vacancies in our apartment complexes.  We appreciate the interest in these complexes.  However, the information we have about vacancies is not always current.  Only the apartment manager knows whether there is a current vacancy and in what kind of apartment (number of bedrooms, handicapped access etc).

Please click to link to the Housing page.  Near the bottom of the page, there is a list of contact information for each of ACHR's Affordable Housing complexes.

DONATIONS ESPECIALLY NEEDED RIGHT NOW

        Old cell phones with their chargers. Even cell phones that are not on a plan can dial 911. These are needed as emergency devices.

        Computers, preferably with Windows 7.  We could use more of these for classrooms.
