"If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other"
An Update from our Executive Director
This has been a very different season for all of us. When the virus first hit, it was difficult to figure out how to keep all our moms and children safe and healthy, as well as follow CDC regulations. We knew we would have to follow proper procedures, which meant quarantining women in need before allowing them to move into our homes with other families. We also knew there would be many calls for assistance, more than we could accommodate. So, we decided the word "TRUST" was going to be our motto. We would help any woman who came our way, not worry about the funding, and TRUST that all needs would be met. We worked out a great deal with a local hotel, extended our respite budget and provided shelter to all women in need who reached out to us. We helped pay rents for women to keep them safe where they were. We paid car insurance, food expenses and more so women could meet their needs and the needs of their children. We also moved many families into our homes. We TRUSTED. Thanks to you, we were financially able to do this. Our friends have been, and continue to be, generous with their time, donations and prayers. We always say we could not do this without you. That will never change.
Special thank you to David Bereit for organizing and hosting our first virtual Soirée. It was a great success and helped allow us to meet the many needs that came our way.
