Letter from the Director - Pastor, Eric Alexander
Greetings from SHLR

 In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, where we get our ability to breathe, move, and have our being, to Him we are eternally grateful, for His continual grace&mercy as well as favor!  

This has been the most trying quarter in the 4 years I've been in the position with the ministry, it has really tested my faith, dedication, and commitment in so many ways. We were met head-on with the Covid-19 pandemic, and it really rocked our numbers in so many ways, there was time our entire staff struggled to breathe and stay encouraged. There were lots of unexpected guidelines and new extreme protocols that were mandatory for implementation. However, God saw us thru and we are much better because of the experience and the challenging changes we learned from. It has been great seeing our ability to make vital adjustments to our procedures and protocols. 

Now, as we move forward to a somewhat normal routine or something that looks near to that, we are "hit" with this second wave. This round of cases for our country is of epic proportion, and in affecting every area of our society. Social distancing and "wearing the mask" seems to be our new normal for our protection, but we are blessed to have The Lord as our refugee, and our keeper. Our numbers have started to move into a positive direction and unity and confidence are on the rise. We are striving tirelessly to stay current and to bring the best possible support to our client's lives.

Standing Strong and Committed is SHLR's new battle cry!! We've come too far to give up now!!

We are planning a big BBQ for the 4th of July, at our facility lots of food for the guys!!

We are very optimistic about the next 6 months of this year, and I look forward to a strong finish! We are excited about our new Initial Case Management, as well as the new aftercare strategies, both of these initiatives will be very strong appendages to the quality of service we give to our clients.

We pray for your support, we need all the help we can get from our friends and partners, and our prayer is the God will touch your hearts. Thank you for all your support!!!
