COVID-19 Impact Fundraiser

Your generosity has enabled our staff to continue our work, and our agency to find new ways to serve effectively during this time of crisis

Hope still matters! Thank you for touching the lives of so many

From a small gift from 12 year-old Antonio that touched all of our hearts to a last minute gift from the John Purcell Family Fund of $50,000 (yes, you read that correctly and we were just as amazed!) that helped us to surpass our original $150,000 goal for our COVID-19 Impact Fund – every gift has propelled our mission forward and touched the thousands of people who we serve. Thank you for answering the call.

note from Antonio

You have shown our dedicated staff that you see the impact of their work in our community and know that it must continue. And continue we will! Because of your support, we will be able to serve them and to offer them the chance for a fresh start that they deserve. Because of your support, we will continue to offer hope and healing to our neighbors who are in need.
