Most Recent Audit
All five programs continue to provide basic, emergency help to record numbers of people. For example, our Soup Kitchen served 113,000 meals last year. In addition we completed a major building renovation that makes our facility fully accessible and streamlines our work. Our supporters sustained our work.
Current Goals
Our goals this year include 1) providing emergency services to continued high numbers of clients, 2) improving the physical and financial status of our building, 3) making improvements to our five programs, 4) finding business partners to increase the impact and sustainability of our programs, 5) conducting an effective fall campaign, with coordinated marketing, public relations, and fundraising
