Dear Light House Community,
Since the start of the pandemic, individuals and families struggling with homelessness have turned to the The Light House in record numbers.
In fact, due to the Covid-19 crisis, we are expecting to serve at minimum 30% more clients than a typical year.
Thanks to the love and support of our community, we have met this challenge head on. During the past 8 months, our Light House staff have put their whole hearts into getting our organization and clients through these troubled waters—helping plan and implement countless adjustments to our operations while also dealing with the dramatic increase in demand.
We are seeing first hand that the people who come to The Light House are those hardest hit by this crisis. Most are also struggling with the difficult question of how to practice social distancing without a safe place to call home, and with the holiday season approaching, they will soon be facing the additional threat of harsh winter weather. Our programs and services ensure that these vulnerable neighbors have the food, shelter, case management, and hope they so desperately need.
Looking ahead to the uncertainty of 2021, our ability to continue this life-saving work will be determined by supporters like you. Contributions to our end of year giving campaign will help us close this year out strong and we hope that you will stand with us by making a gift.
Together, we can continue to keep our struggling neighbors safe, warm, and on a path to stability and healing. I hope you and your loved ones remain safe and warm as well and that you will keep your neighbors at The Light House in your thoughts and prayers.
With deepest gratitude.
