Volunteering with Upward Bound House

Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club has developed an on-going relationship with Upward Bound House (UBH) in Santa Monica. UBH provides transitional housing and many additional services to families in need in our community. Each new UBH family moving into a small apartment is given all the basics to set up their new home, including new towels, bedding, dishes and kitchen items.

In August, SMBWC provided everything needed for one new family, a mom and her two young children. Our liaison with UBH is Tery Schooler who organized the purchase of all the items by Becky Upchurch and Addie Stalk. Becky, Tery, Marcia Stein and Susan Barry helped to put everything in place ready for the family to move in that afternoon.
