News & Upcoming events

We work hard to get our efforts noticed by the media and are so proud when this goal comes to fruition. A well informed community is an empowered one as well, so take a look at some of the latest coverage we’ve received below and help spread the word about all the amazing developments and events connected with Hurlburt Johnson Friendship House.

Need for paper products

We continue to have a need for paper products due to increased census in both our regular program and due to our COLD weather program where we house residents during weather below 32 degrees.  This would include toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and Kleenex.  These items can be dropped off at the shelter at 73 Blumenthal St. Murphy.

The HJFH continues to serve homeless people and provide a safe and nurturing environment throughout the year with our "regular" shelter program and our additional CODE PURPLE PROGRAM

The HJFH once again shows its impact on our community with numbers served in September!

Total Nights Stayed:               466                                    


Total Number of Residents:    25                         


Total of New Residents:           11                               


Found Apartments:                     3                                             

Please join us for our 2019 Annual Charity Gala on October 5th at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Hayesville.  Gnarly Fingers will provide our musical entertainment along with a live and silent auction.
