It is staff's goal here at Lambuth to make our building a safe and comforting space for guests, while they do the hard work of getting on their feet. This means that we do our best to provide private spaces where families can experience peace, as well as common spaces where budding community can foster a sense of hope.
Each family receives their own room upon arriving at Lambuth. These rooms come furnished with bunk beds made up with sheets, pillows, and blankets, as well as a wardrobe, dresser, and nightstand. All rooms have an adjacent toilet room, and most include a shower. Those that don't are provided with keys to single-use baths located on their floor.
Although the kitchen operates on a fixed schedule, the dining room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's not uncommon here to see students snacking after school and working on homework while group of parents talk about their day at work and toddlers giggle in the playpen.
Recently re-imagined thanks to a combination of grant funding, generous donors, and hardworking volunteers, young eyes light up when they see our toddler room. Whether they immediately pull a truck off a shelf, start cooking a meal in our play kitchen, turn the pages of a board book, or scramble through a giant caterpillar-shaped tunnel, this is a place for parents and youngsters to explore and grow together.
The day room is designed to be half-educational space, half-family room. This is a place where families can play games together, pull books off the shelves of our ever-improving library, use checked-out laptops to do homework, or just lounge together.
We believe that a little fresh air can go a long way, and we know that in an urban environment, it can sometimes be difficult for families to spend enough time outside. For that reason, we have a secure playground where parents can take their kids to play and let off steam. The vision doesn't stop there. In 2020, Lambuth built and maintained a community garden on-site, with the help of volunteers and families staying at Lambuth. The garden has not only provided fresh vegetables for Lambuth families, but has also become a place where parents and children come to feel the earth under their hands, learn, and grow.
