While the world around us continues to present us with new challenges, our homes and programs continue to provide opportunities for young women and children suffering from homelessness to transition to new lives of healthy, independent living. Babies being born, young mothers returning to high school or enrolling in college, and new families moving into their own homes for the first time remind us that life goes on. And that life is good.
Our maternity home is full and almost always have waiting lists of clients waiting for a room to open up. Our emergency shelter provides these young women a place to live and to begin their transition to healthy living. Amy's House, the Backyard Ministry and the Samaritan House are at capacity with young mothers who are enrolled in college. So many of these young women earnestly desire to give their children a loving and stable home and upbringing.
Like all nonprofits, we have faced numerous financial challenges over the last few years. We have had to rethink and restructure our organization to better utilize our resources. New partnerships and collaborations have developed as we work with other human service providers and ministries to meet the ever-present need of our young families. We are thankful that our stakeholders have continued to provide support and assistance for our programs. We could not have done this without your support. Thank you!
While our mothers and children were finding success, our agency has also had a number of achievements over the last year. In addition to maintaining our accreditation by COA, our programs have met all of their targeted outcomes.
Thank you for all you do for our mothers and children. Together, we can continue to make "room at the inn" for some of the most vulnerable of our community: pregnant women and single mothers with children suffering from homelessness.
