Volunteer - Get Involved in 2019
We're a guilt-free membership, but also have plenty of ways for you to lend a hand.  Standing (year-round) and seasonal committees need your help!  Join us   and choose volunteer opportunities that best meet your schedule and match your interests: Marketing, Membership & Recruiting, Event Planning, Focus Area Committees (FAC), CIRC (Financial Review), and for "one and done" tasks and help at events. 
If you are interested in joining a committee or volunteering - we could certainly use a hand!  Share your preference for committee or volunteer participation HERE.

Grants are reviewed in two rounds: (1) Letter of Intent (January 28-February 21) and (2) Common Grant Application (April, followed by Site Visits through May).  The Focus Area Committee meeting schedule and locations are finalized for 2019 as follows:
  • Culture, Monday Lunch, Downtown;
  • Community Investment Review Committee (CIRC), Monday Evenings, Blue Ash.  This committee first meets around March 18;
  • Health & Wellness, Tuesday Evenings, Bellevue, KY;

Mission Moment

2 016 Grant Recipient St. Francis Seraph Ministries'
St. Anthony Center Update

The new Dining Room in the St. Anthony Center opened 12/20/2017 and operates Monday through Friday serving Breakfast and Dinner.  The Center for Respite Care Kitchenette is used daily by their clients and staff as needed when meals are not provided through the SAC Dining Room. Since opening last year, the St. Francis Seraph Ministries' (SFSM) Dining Room has served over 69,000 meals and provided 6,000 Bag Lunches each month.
Approximately 350-400 meals per day are now served to those in need in our community.  Additionally, SFSM expanded the Bag Lunch program to 6,000 mobile meals per month because of the extra storage space available in their new kitchen.  The Dining Room fills the gap for our homeless neighbors as they have a safe, regular place to visit when other agencies are closed. Many of our neighbors now work because they have access to meals morning and at night which accommodates their work schedule.  The best news about the impact of this grant funding is the 1,200 new volunteers who were recruited and served our programs during the past year. Collectively these volunteers donated over 16,500 hours of time, valued at $384,960.
The SFSM Dining Room program has provided the opportunity for many neighbors to find the resources they need to take the next steps needed to improve their lives. The SFSM Dining Room, partially supported by Impact 100, is building community for those who are displaced and often feel rejected.
