Nonprofit for mothers needs a home

Borromeo Housing Inc. is in immediate need of permanent housing for the nonprofit’s Infant Care Supply Center, which provides families living in poverty with diapers, clothes and other needs. 

BHI needs a large room in the Arlington or Falls Church area with enough space for bins and shelves, preferably floor-to-ceiling. An office on a first floor or near an elevator, with enough space for a desk to fill out paperwork and meet with potential clients, would be ideal. 

Last week, the nonprofit disbursed larger-than-usual donations to partner organizations to clear room after they had to vacate the space they occupied previously. The Edward Douglass White Knights of Columbus Council has agreed to provide temporary housing for the nonprofit’s remaining supplies, but the supply center is closed until a permanent solution can be found.  

“From a long-term perspective we have to either find a home or accept the fact that the community outreach portion of our mission is not viable,” said Dani Seltzer, board chair.

BHI is a non-sectarian, faith-based organization founded in 1988 to help homeless and at-risk young mothers obtain education and employment. The group operates a residential home for young mothers in addition to the Infant Care Supply Center, which assists 100 to 150 needy families every month.
