Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard on Main Street here in Ambler provides a lot of assistance to our families at Hope Gardens, so they just wanted to take a moment to say, “THANK YOU MATTIE DIXON!”

Sesame Street is breaking new ground again, this time with the muppet Lily, who has no place to live. Lily is featured in a series of online episodes in which she reveals to her good pal Elmo news of her family’s experience with homelessness.
