Dear Friends,

Hey, Hey, it’s our Birthday!!! We just turned 35!!! Let’s Celebrate!!!

Let’s celebrate the wonderful gift of you! Thanks to your generous support throughout our 35 years, we have grown from a small shelter helping a dozen homeless guests nightly in 1982 into a 24/7 community center that is creating permanent housing solutions in 2017 by sheltering 50 people nightly, serving 530 meals daily, providing 1,000 showers weekly, offering 2 skills-building workshops daily, and much more. We are truly honored to celebrate our 35th with you! Thank you for being the key to ending hunger and homelessness in our community!

Let’s celebrate how you are changing lives every day! Your donations truly make a difference. Thanks to your investment in our guests, you have given a hand-up to 1,000s of guests like Crystal, a successfully housed guest featured in our newsletter. Unfortunately, life took an unexpected turn for the worse and she suddenly became homeless in 2010. Thanks to you, we were able to provide her with safe shelter, warm meals, and hope to start again. With your support, we stood by her side giving her strength along her difficult journey to become housed again in 2011. Now the sky’s the limit for her! Thank you for putting the keys to her bright future in her hands.

Let’s celebrate our 35th together with a special 35th gift! A donation of $35 will sponsor 12 guests in our computer classes. A donation of $350 will sponsor 1 guest with safe shelter for an entire week. A donation of $3,500 will sponsor 4 guests moving into their own homes! Your investment in our guests truly helps them get back on their feet as they move from the streets to our Shelter to their own homes!

Thank you for celebrating this landmark year with us. Happy 35th!!!

Spring 2016 Newsletter

Spring Newsletter

Dear Friend,

Spring is a time for new beginnings. As the flowers burst out of the once cold ground, hope blooms here at our Shelter with your help.

Yet, to be honest, it is hard for our homeless neighbors to have hope when they are hungry & living on the streets.

Thanks to your support & donations, we can keep our lights on, doors open, food on the table, & hope in the hearts of 100s of people who knock on our door every day for help & hope.

Thanks to you, our Shelter is where hunger ends & hope begins!

Thanks for giving hope to the homeless!

Dear Friend,
Thanks to you, Irma will be spending the Holidays in her own home! It is only with your support that we are able to move our homeless neighbors, like Irma, from the streets to our Shelter to their own homes.

Thanks to you, our hungry and homeless neighbors who don’t have any family or anywhere else to turn to will be coming to us and calling our Shelter their “home” for the Holidays. They are depending on us for the support and care that they need on their journey to become housed, and we are depending on you to keep our doors open, lights on, and warm food on the table for them.

Thanks to you, we are able to provide 50 guests with safe shelter nightly, serve 500 warm meals daily, offer 1000 showers weekly, help the homeless look for jobs and apartments, and provide real-world tools in our workshops, which include Financial Literacy, Job & Employment Issues, Computers, Culinary Arts, and Health & Hygiene.

Thanks to you, with a donation of $100, we can serve 50 nutritious meals or teach 35 guests how to use the computer or offer 25 guests the opportunity to learn how to cook for themselves on a budget and gain employable skills to be hired in a restaurant. You can truly change a life today with your donation.

Thanks to you, together, we are ending hunger and homelessness!
Best wishes for happy and healthy Holidays.
Jaclyn Cherubini, Executive Director
