We wanted to give everyone a brief snapshot of our year so far. Our operating year is Jan – Dec.
Total Donations received to date in 2011: $1195.00
Plain and Simple Fact.
We need to rely on folks like You for funds. Folks like You need to rely on folks like us to do the work.
If Not You, Then Who?
Since January of this year, we have assisted on a one on one basis over 100 people with a number of our services. In addition, just this month we have placed two laptop computers on a “loaner” basis to two of our Friends In Need in order to provide them better access to look for jobs, housing and other needs rather than accessing the “Chronic Assistance Cycle”, we are showing them to do it on their own. This weekend we plan spending time with two of them training them more on the use of the Internet, Microsoft Word and Excel. The goal is to build them to self-reliance as soon as possible and get them Up&Out of the Chronic Assistance Cycle. In addition, we will be meeting with 3 others this weekend for follow up interviews. It all takes fuel and funds for meals at these meetings. Remember, we are meeting and spending Time with those in need. These are not Golf outings.
We spend extensive time with all of those we encounter. It takes money. Plain and Simple Fact.
If you do the math, assisting over 100 people with food, clothing, transportation, extensive time and more, while funds raised is $1195.00. This breaks down to available funds of $11.95 for each person we have assisted. It simply is not enough. The money needs to come from somewhere. When needed monetary donations do not come in, we are placed in a situation where we must use our personal funds. When our personal funds are depleted as they are now…….then what?
We provide the communities in which we operate an extremely valuable service. We need your help to continue this service.

**Mobile Crisis van update. It is running and we are driving it, but the transmission still will not shift into high gear. Still needing to replace the van as it has over 235,000 miles and is beginning to nickle and dime us.
