We’re helping to meet the basic needs of our community’s most vulnerable people, giving every local community member the opportunity to realize a better future. We are moving people from Poverty to Possibility by funding programs that provides supports for people who need help like counseling, a dry, warm place to sleep and shower, have meals delivered, teach people to shop and cook and give them skills they need to get a job.
