The Bailey Home
The new “Bailey Home”, a place for up to six single women with children to call home is just about ready to open.
The Bailey Home, a former church, at 103 East Main, Albany (the corner of 1st and Main) is now a six bedroom facility with 2 1/2 baths, a full kitchen with accessories, and two washers and dryers. This home will afford a maximum of ten occupants including a “House Mother.”
The Bailey Home is named to commemorate Albany Helping Hands founder, the late Pastor Les Bailey. His faith in the Lord and Love for people were elements that molded his vision in the building of the organization. For more information on the Bailey Home click here.
