A New Place for Homeless Kids to Play

Students, faculty and staff from McCann Technical School in North

Adams, Mass., helped spruce up Louison House, their area’s homeless shelter. With funds raised selling candles, they repainted the play room, added peel-and-stick images to the walls and bought a toy kitchen set.

Louison House and its Family Life Support Center were created 25 years ago to address homelessness in the region. Typically, one-third of clients are children.
