Merry Christmas from Home of the Sparrow

December 24, 2016

I could not imagine a better time to come on board as the new Chief Executive Officer. Patricia McLennan, who will officially retire at the end of the month, has done an outstanding job in building and growing this organization with heart and courage and it is a great honor for me to continue that growth.

Every day, I draw new inspiration from the women we partner with. Their personal journeys, strength and motivation to build better lives for themselves simply astonish me.

Let me give you an example of a personal story that deeply touched me. Anne is in her mid-thirties and she has four children, including a daughter with special needs. We got to know Anne in July, when she reached out for help. Anne had lost her job in May and was now facing eviction. Fortunately, we were able to help her remain in her apartment through our Eviction Prevention Program.

One thing you have to know about her is that she is incredibly hard working and disciplined. From Monday to Thursday, she works on her degree to become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). To provide for her family, she spends Friday through Sunday working in the nursing field. Can you imagine the kind of strength and drive that Anne must have to raise four children on her own, to go to school and to work at the same time? Anne has always been very proactive and diligent in striving to meet her goals and is currently enrolled in our Supportive Housing Program.

Last year, we received 1367 phone calls from women who are in need of safe and affordable housing. Right now, Home of the Sparrow supports 51 women and 85 children through our Supportive Housing Program and we prevented evictions for 68 women and children this year.

There is great need within our community, and we are grateful for all the support we receive. We could do none of this without you. Thank you for your dedication to the women and children in our programs. My goal for 2017 is to build upon the amazing success achieved under Pat’s leadership by helping and empowering at risk women and children. We will continue to innovate, empower women to be self-sufficient and financially stable and fight to prevent and end homelessness in Chester County.


Happy Holidays,


Michelle E. Venema


Chief Executive Officer
