DePalmer House Receives Support from Syracuse Stage

March 31, 2016

Again this year, Syracuse Stage has made a generous donation of $8,425 to Liberty Resources’ DePalmer House transitional shelter. This past holiday season, during the productions of “Peter Pan” and “The Santaland Diaries,” Syracuse Stage collected donations for organizations assisting those struggling with HIV/AIDS.

“As transitional housing program funding continues to be cut, donations, such as this one from Syracuse Stage, are essential to the ongoing operation of DePalmer House, and they enable us to better serve its residents,” states Marta Durkin, Vice President of Behavioral Healthcare at Liberty Resources. “On behalf of all of us at Liberty Resources, we want you to know that it is the support of dedicated patrons who help us to maintain high standards of excellence in the programs we serve.”

Since its opening in 1994, DePalmer House has provided transitional housing for more than 700 homeless individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, with the ultimate goal of helping residents attain self-sufficiency and safe, affordable permanent housing of their choice. DePalmer House offers linkages with a wide variety of services including social services, local case management programs, health care, transportation, and other resources.

Over the last 22 years of giving, Syracuse Stage audiences have contributed $362,817 to local and national organizations. Money raised will also assist Upstate Medical University’s Pediatric Designated AIDS Center and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
