We continue to provide essential help to people in need — DOUBLE the meals and TRIPLE the grocery bags. While all of us are threatened by the COVID-19 virus, our low-income, homeless, mentally ill, or unemployed neighbors are suffering even more. I’m so proud of our staff and residents who are out on the frontlines, meeting needs daily with patience and grace.  Thank you for praying for us, thank you for partnering with us, and thank you for supporting our work.

Serving together,

Frank Williams
Chief Executive Officer
