In the fall of 2019, a home damaged by fire in Dryden NY was donated to Second Wind Cottages.  A team of passionate Dryden residents quickly formed. They along, with the Second Wind Cottages board of directors, had a shared interest in providing housing to homeless women. 


Second Wind Cottage's Dryden House is currently completing our design phase, and we'll be in need of your volunteer help soon.

This project, first dreamed in the fall of 2019, will build a multi-unit residential facility dedicated to house, and walk with homeless and at-risk adult women and their children towards restored lives.

If you are interested in volunteering with our build please email secondwindcottages@gmail.com.

We NEED your help. Make a donation Today! 

Building materials are on the rise. As we prepare to begin purchasing building materials, and putting organizing our building crew, we are aware that the cost of materials is on the rise. Also, and differently from the Newfield Cottages, the Dryden House will require more professional hands to complete some of the more complicated phases in this build. Please consider making a donation to the Dryden Homeless Women's Housing project today. Donations can be designated for the Dryden House project by stating "Dryden House" on the memo line of a check donation or by selecting "Dryden House" on the drop down menu of the online form.
