As you know, we have been working diligently to be present to persons in our communities who need assistance with housing, legal advocacy and the support they need to live responsibly. It has been our privilege to be part of staffs’ and participants’ lives and to be gifted with watching their lives unfold. We’re sure we are not the only non-profit that seeks your help. Know that we are truly thankful for any assistance you are able to give whether it be financial support, volunteering within the agency, or your commitment as staff.
At present we live in a confusing time of change within our government. Their priorities not only affect our funding through reductions in our contracts, but also the ability of our participants to understand these complex changes enough to continue to be able to advocate for the assistance to which they are entitled. And so we continue to do what we can, what we must do, knowing we cannot do this without you.
We remember this quotation from Chief Seattle, especially in times like these. He said:
“We did not weave the web of life. We are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.”
We have been blessed to have many people in our lives, in the life of this agency, who know this to be true. We are deeply grateful for your ongoing support.
