As we move closer to the winter season and experience our first round of colder temperatures, the needs of our neighbors facing homelessness and poverty becomes more apparent. Having to sleep outside in the brutal temperatures is truly unimaginable--yet over 1,000 of our community members face this everyday.
I remain motivated that through the county-wide efforts and that of our caring community-we will continue moving closer to a day when no one has to face the danger of the harsh winter months.
Since our founding, FACETS has had the ability to remain in-tune with the needs of our community and adapt. This has led to more individuals being offered a helping hand and greater opportunities for individuals like you and I to directly have a positive impact in someone's life. We are creating a stronger community-collectively our impact is tremendous!
- 386 individuals were brought in from the cold last year-receiving services during our Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program.
- Over 240 families were supported in securing their dreams of economic stability--equating to 530 children and 340 adults.
- Every youth participant of our College Access Program went on to higher forms of education-many the first in their family.
FACETS remains effective because of individuals like you. We all have a care and concern for our neighbors-and it is this shared effort that has brought so many home. During this giving season, I ask that you remain generous. By making a gift today we can continue bringing our neighbors home for the holidays.
Thank you for serving as a partner!
