MOTHER SETON HOUSE GROUP TO BUY HOME IN FRYEBURG

by Gair on November 18, 2011

A TRUSTEE OF THE NON-PROFIT GROUP THAT SUPPORTS PREGNANT WOMEN AND YOUNG SINGLE MOTHERS IN THE VALLEY AREA SAYS SHE’S EXUBERANT HER GROUP WILL BE ABLE TO BUY A HOME IN FRYEBURG, MAINE  TO ACCOMMODATE THE WOMEN.

LORETTA CHAUVIN  SAYS A RECENT GIFT OF $65,000 FROM THE KENDAL C. AND ANNA HAM CHARITABLE FOUNDATION WILL SECURE THE PURCHASE OF A HOME FOR MOTHER SETON HOUSE, WHERE PREGNANT WOMEN, MOTHERS AND THEIR INFANTS ARE OFFERED A SAFE LIVING ENVIRONMENT WHILE THEY DEVELOP SKILLS AND RESOURCES TO BECOME INDEPENDENT.

THE GROUP ALREADY HAS A 4-BEDROOM HOUSE NEAR FRYEBURG ACADEMY UNDER A PURCHASE AGREEMENT – TO PROTECT THE PRIVACY OF THE WOMEN, CHAUVIN DECLINES TO IDENTIFY ITS ADDRESS.

THE GROUP HOPES TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS AND WILL THEN WORK TO RENOVATE THE HOME FOR OCCUPANCY.

A $30,000 GRANT AWARDED IN JUNE BY THE NORTH CONWAY BASED GIBSON WOODBURY CHARITABLE FOUNDATION WILL PAY FOR SOME IMPROVEMENTS, BUT CHAUVIN SAYS HER GROUP WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ANY DONATED BUILDING MATERIALS AND LABOR FROM LICENSED CONTRACTORS, PLUMBERS AND ELECTRICIANS.

CHAUVIN THANKS THE DIRECTORS OF BOTH CHARITABLE FOUNDATIONS, BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED CLOTHING AND BABY ITEMS – AND ALL THE GROUP’S FAITHFUL SUPPORTERS AND VOLUNTEERS.

TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS TO THE MOTHER SETON HOUSE CAN BE MADE ON ITS WEBSITE AT www.mothersetonhouse.com OR MAILED TO POST OFFICE BOX 673, FRYEBURG MAINE 04037.
