:: Carrie Simon House

Providing a Home for Women & Children in Need

For more than two decades, Carrie Simon House (CSH) has provided a safe and supportive home for homeless young women ages 18 – 24 and their babies. While residing at CSH, residents must attend school, participate in job training or hold a job, perform assigned household chores, comply with a curfew and other rules, and meet regularly with a case manager.


Volunteer: Offer your professional expertise and/or become a member of our committee! We welcome anyone interested in volunteering their time or sharing a special skill — such as nutrition, financial literacy, budget planning, parenting, or child development — to join us. We are also looking for help with grant writing and fundraising.

Buy SCRIP: SCRIP are Giant, Peapod by Giant, Safeway, Starbucks, and CVS gift cards WHC purchases at a discount and resells at face value to congregants. SCRIP subscribers pay no extra money for the cards they receive each month, and the purchase of the cards generates regular monthly income for Carrie Simon House. SCRIP can be used to pay for whatever you typically shop for: groceries, household supplies, health and beauty needs, magazines, postage stamps, coffee…you name it! To learn more, please see below.

Donate: Temple members can support CSH most directly through monetary donations. One hundred percent of all donations goes toward the considerable operating costs of the house and toward special projects. Temple members may also donate household items, including:

Paper towels Furniture polish Fabric Softener Aluminum foil
Toilet tissue Glass cleaner Laundry detergent Zipper storage bags
Napkins Air fresheners Dryer sheets Plastic wrap
Kitchen sponges Hand sanitizer Bars of soap Plastic trash bags
Bleach wipes Hand soap    

Bins for these items are located by the doors
in the lobbies of both Temple and JBSC.
