Urgent Needs List  







Your support can make a difference, be a hero for our neighbors in need. 2020 was a difficult year for most of us, and even more so for those struggling with homelessness. Unfortunately, this year we are not able to host our largest fundraising event, the annual Gala Dinner.  This event is critical to helping us meet our fundraising goals, so that we can continue to provide shelter for individuals and families. We humbly ask that you consider making a donation to help us fill this fundraising gap. Be a hero wearing a mask and still Unmask the Face of Homelessness.


     231         Men, women, & children served in the shelter
   18,000    Nights of service provided
     84          Persons stably housed within our Homeless Prevention Program
     54,000   Nutritious meals served
     1,800     Service and referral calls 


Thank you for your prayers and support as we navigate these challenging times.
May God bless you and your family. 




Homelessness doesn’t have to be a part of our community. Miracles do happen — but we need your help! Please share with us your time or resources, and make a difference in someone’s life today.
