Success by the Numbers
It's not just how many people we serve or how many meals or clothes we give out that is important. Even more vital are lives being changed. Our services guarantee that the poor and homeless who come through our doors have the opportunity to live meaningful lives with long-term sobriety, stable income, stable mental and physical health and long-term, affordable housing.
Listed below are our program outcomes for 2013. The numbers by themselves are not important but they represent hundreds of real people who are now enjoying independence in their lives. You can also read and hear some of these remarkable success stories on our website.
