Haley House "Salt of the earth" Volunteer

On September 19, 2012, Claudia Hunter, a long-time friend, supporter, and volunteer at Haley House, passed away. Reflecting on Claudia's incredible contributions to those around her, Kathe McKenna describes Claudia with the phrase "Salt of the Earth." "Claudia was such a quiet 'doer' - working to create the ideal beloved community she envisioned so clearly," says Kathe. "Claudia was the on-the-ground force to help us get there, not just to wax eloquently about it!" Donations in her memory may be made to Partners in Health.

Order Thanksgiving Pies from Haley House
Tuesday, November 13 at 5:00pm - Order Deadline

  2012PiePosterHard to believe that it is already time to think about Thanksgiving Pies! The Haley House Annual Pie Drive helps support our Transitional Employment Program (TEP), in addition to being a chance to indulge in our delicious handmade pies!  Pies cost $20 each, and we offer five varieties: Apple Crumb, Blueberry Crumb, Pecan, Pumpkin, and Sweet Potato. The Apple Crumb pie will be made with apples generously donated by Apex Orchards, and the Pecan pie will be sweetened with amber agave nectar (instead of the usual corn syrup).  To place an order for yourself or to learn how to be a Pie Captain, please see our website or call 617 318 6008.
