From Poverty To
In a community where everyone matters, we all look after one another. When individuals and families are facing tough times, we extend our hands to help with immediate needs and connect them to programs and services proven to lead to long-term independence.
Our focus remains on helping to meet the basic needs of our community’s most vulnerable people. We want to give every individual the opportunity to realize a better future.
Our key observable outcomes came in the form of observable improvements in overall housing stability. Equally important, there were positive improvements in overall food security. Finally, there were tangible improvements in employment and financial security.
First, over 300 homeless individuals were able to re-establish broken connections with family and loved ones through the efforts of each of the 3 agencies’ caring staff. Second, during one of our coldest winters on record, individuals were given 830 winter toques, 1242 warm pairs of winter gloves, and 248 warm winter jackets. Third, 24,338 meals have been served to patrons staying in the Emergency Shelter and the Out of Cold Shelter.
