About the Charity

The Salvation Army Ken and Marianna Staples Family Center
is more than just a place to stay for the families and individuals who reside there. It is a home with a caring and supportive atmosphere. With the aid of individual casework services, our residents work toward establishing greater self-sufficiency with the goal of being able to move into permanent housing and employment. The Staples Family Center also runs a transitional housing program for homeless veterans in our community, the Veterans Haven of Hope House.

It is only through the support of The Festive Affair and its generous contributors over the past 25 years that The Staples Family Center and its residents have been able to thrive. By supporting The Festive Affair, you are improving lives and strengthening our community. Thank you!
