More than 60 warm children’s coats were collected by employees of McGoey Hauser & Edsall Consulting Engineers for distribution through the Pike County Office of Human Services to Family Promise, which provides emergency shelter and housing assistance to homeless and at-risk children and their families.

Case manager Stephanie Everson will share the coats with local families whom she works with through programs such as Rapid Re-housing and Homelessness Prevention, which assists qualifying homeless individuals and/or families with expenses like security deposits, first and last months’ rent, moving costs, and utility deposits.

“The coat drive is an excellent example of a public/private partnership supporting the people of Pike County during an extremely difficult time,” said Pike County Commissioner Chair Matthew Osterberg. “We are grateful for this generous contribution to our community.”

“Our firm is committed to Pike County, and we hope the coats provide warmth and comfort to local children and their families,” said Michael Lamoreaux of McGoey Hauser & Edsall.
