With the support of thousands of donors and volunteers, we have been able to expand our services to meet a growing need. However, we don’t measure our success by the number of people served. We measure our success on the progress our clients make towards self-sustainability.
In 2012, we provided the following services to our clients:
- We served over 60,000 meals throughout the year
- We were able to connect over 400 people with medical and mental health services
- We provided over 300 people with the employment services they needed
But we don’t just measure our progress by our capacity to meet the growing need. We measure ourselves by the progress our clients make. In 2012:
- We connected 80 people with housing either through transitional programs or through rent assistance
- We helped 84 of our clients get jobs; more than double the year before
- Our clients rate our services very highly, and that is very important to us.
We helped over 400 people access benefits such as food stamps, AND, SSI
