OUR IMPACT IN 2021
Spent on programs
“As a person with disabilities, it is often too hard for me to shop and then cook food the same day. By having the ingredients ready for me, I could achieve the success of preparing the meal quickly. This was motivating for me.”
“I really liked the kindness and support given by the staff. The staff actually seems to care about your problems and you getting clean. The food is good and I like how it feels as if you were at home.”
“My therapist was an excellent fit for me. Her empathy, compassion, and listening skills are excellent. I was well cared for by her.”
