Dear Diary

Dec 24 - Thank you to John Brandt-Lee, owner of Avalon Restaurant, his patrons, the ladies of both Headquarters Hair Salon, and Kappa Delta Alumni. Again this year, each of these groups reached out to share the love of the season with a family in need. Yes there were presents given but these acts of kindness are really about the loving embrace of strangers. The real gifts are that of faith, hope, and love.

Nov 30 - A cold, rainy November day...nothing like it to make you appreciate the roof over your head...and your heater. In the last 2 days we connected 2 men, who'd been sleeping outside, to shelter fund an an emergency hotel stay - his new place isn't available. The other to a men's shelter that will provide him with longer-term support to help get him back on his feet.

Oct 28 - We were visited by 3 former clients today, all of whom we assisted in different ways, at different times, Each shared good longer shelter residents, all are housed, employed, and very appreciative of the support we were able to provide. Thank you donors for making it possible for us to walk along side of people when they need someone in their corner!
