2018 Homes For All
Beautiful Birdhouses Return To Seacoast
On May 1st, 15 decorated, 54” inch, 12 apartment birdhouses will once again emerge from artists’ studios on to the streets of Portsmouth, Greenland, Hampton, Exeter and beyond. It's all part of Seacoast Family Promise’s public street art project, aptly titled “Homes for ALL”. The Innovative project, chaired by Stratham resident Eileen Joyce-Coute, is a unique partnership between local artists and businesses to spark a conversation surrounding families with children experiencing homelessness served by Seacoast Family Promise and the need for more affordable housing.
The free-standing structures will focus on the greater Exeter area this year, for a more Central scavenger hunt.
Throughout the month of May, residents and visitors to the Exeter area will have the opportunity to participate in a Scavenger Hunt to locate the 15 birdhouses. Similar to last year's project, by liking Seacoast Family Promise on Facebook and posting photos of the birdhouses, participants will have an opportunity to win a prize every week.
Visitors and residents are invited to tour the area, view each of the birdhouses and visit the local sponsoring businesses supporting the project as sponsors. Participant will also have the opportunity to vote for a favorite birdhouse.
Homes For All will culminate in an evening of fun and entertainment with a fundraising auction at the Decker Barn in Stratham on Thursday, May 31st from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The event will feature music, food drinks and an auction. Tickets to the Homes For All fundraising auction are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and available here.
