Members from the Ormond Beach Lei-dees’ Group for 50+ donated dozens of items for the residents living on the Family Renew Community campuses, along with $174 for their future use during the group's monthly Bunco game night.
The Lei-dees hosted Heidi Grunberg Daniels, executive director of the Family Renew Community, who spoke about the services her organization offers to Volusia County homeless families, according to a press release.
Family Renew Community has campuses in Holly Hill, Daytona Beach, and DeLand consisting of 32 apartments. Since 1989, the organization has provided assistance to 40-45 Volusia families a year. Family Renew Community has a 95% success rate, the press release states, which is based on families remaining drug free, working, and in their own homes two years after leaving the program.
