Increase in Service Requests

Service requests are up up up right now.

We've had a 100% increase in the number of domestic violence service requests. This is a scary thing, suggesting the more and more local families are struggling due to the economy and other factors, and bringing that stress home. Remember, families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.

That's not all. Our average lunches are now between 220 and 260 people...up from 140-160 last summer; breakfasts have been 100-140, up from 60-80.

People are in need and funds are low.

We need your help today more than ever!
