On Easter morning as we celebrate the Risen Christ in the warm embrace of our family and friends, please remember our neighbors in need who struggle with day-to-day survival.

Make a gift now and help “one of the least of these,” just as Jesus commands. Your generosity will…

  • Help a broken family receive housing assistance, counseling treatment or other services to overcome some of today’s challenges;
  • Help a medically fragile child find a permanent, loving foster or adoptive home;  
  • Help a struggling and at-risk teen gain the guidance and support he or she needs to grow into a responsible adult;
  • Aid older adults remain in the homes they cherish as long as possible.


This year, we need your help to continue providing that hope for those in our communities who rely on us in their daily struggles for survival.

Many hands, one heart…together we make a real impact on the lives of others…
