SAVE Home

SAVE Home Dinner


Every Sunday night since May 9, 1993, members of Beth Torah have provided dinner to the residents of SAVEhome, a supervised 8-bed housing support unit for those with HIV/AIDS.  SAVEhome is part of SAVE, Inc., (www.saveinckc.org) a local non-profit housing organization that serves over 800 individuals and families affected by or at risk for HIV/AIDS, including those with substance abuse or other mental health problems.  Individuals and families sign up for a particular Sunday night and bring dinner to the residents of SAVEhome.  You can cook at home and bring it, cook at SAVEhome (they have a regular full kitchen), or bring some take-out food like pizza, BBQ, chicken.  Volunteers are encouraged to stay and have dinner with the residents, but that is not required.  Some do this just once a year; others sign up more often.  The choice is yours!  This long term Social Justice Project is coordinated by Lauren Aaronson, who can be contacted via email at: laaronso@kumc.edu for more information.


Thank you for helping make this one of our most successful Beth Torah Social Justice projects!
