HomeAid Sacramento to Participate in Ashby House Expansion

ROSEVILLE – HomeAid Sacramento is pleased to announce its participation in the expansion of New Morning Youth & Family Services’ Ashby House, the organization’s runaway and homeless children’s center. The project, recently approved by New Morning’s Board of Directors, involves the construction of a new 400 square foot multi-purpose room with an estimated cost of $300,000. The Builder Captain for the New Morning Ashby House addition project is John Caulfield, the President of Landmark Builders.

“We are humbled to play an important role in enabling New Morning to grow its service capabilities and play an even larger role in the lives of the young people the organization serves,” said Amber Celmer, Executive Director of HomeAid Sacramento. “The work that New Morning does is absolutely critical in helping local youth turn their lives around and realize that there is a path forward for them.”

“This is a game changer for New Morning,” said Victor Antonio, Executive Director of New Morning. “Our organization is staffed by passionate individuals, who work tirelessly to provide a hand up for the young people we serve. This expansion will significantly enhance the offerings we can provide to the young people who come to us, and for that we are grateful to HomeAid Sacramento.”

About New Morning

New Morning Youth and Family Services operates the only shelter of its kind in El Dorado County — open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All shelter services are free. Sometimes running away feels like the only way out but living on the streets is dangerous. Staying with friends may be safer, but they can’t provide professional help. New Morning’s Ashby House Children’s Shelter offers temporary housing, hot meals, clothing, and individual and family counseling services for kids ages 6 – 17. Youth Behavioral Specialists are available to help 24-hours a day. Youth can admit themselves or be referred by family, friends, police, schools, or private agencies. New Morning offers a safe environment free of tobacco, drugs, and violence. The Shelter always needs and appreciates donations, especially gift cards, since this allows New Morning to purchase items specific to the sizes and needs of children and youth.
