The Season of Hope
As we near the end of 2021, we face the stark reality that many people in our community are hungry, experiencing homelessness or in danger from domestic violence.

Together, we can do something about this. Together, we can help our neighbors create futures full of hope, full of potential, full of laughter.

Your support will assist individuals and families now and into the new year, with food, housing and safe shelter.

Please consider making a gift today … thank you for your generosity!
