Our fiscal year ends on September 30, 2019 – help us end the year financially healthy!

Dear Friend of the Mission,

It is hard to believe that another fiscal year will soon end on September 30, 2019. Your wonderful support this past year has helped us to have a pretty stable year financially. I want to thank you for your kind and generous gifts which made this possible. As we come to the end of our fiscal year, please give an extra generous gift so we end our fiscal year in good financial shape. Ending the year well also gives us the go-ahead to give our staff much earned and needed raises. Because we had a financially challenging fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, we pretty much put a hold on staff raises this past year. We have a hard-working staff who are willing to work at the Mission for far less than what they can make elsewhere. Since routine staff raises were skipped for a year, we want to provide raises for our staff in our new fiscal year beginning October 1, 2019. Ending this fiscal year financially healthy helps us to do so. Thanks so much for whatever you can give!

Click here for our New Life Program flier – you can print and give it to a man experiencing homelessness. Feel free to call or email me (215-438-3094 ext. 102, or if you would like printed copies to share. This handout was put together by our residents a few years ago. We asked our residents the following: “Knowing what you know now about the Mission, what do you wish you knew when you were out there on the street that would have convinced you to come in sooner? What do you want guys who are out there now – men you think should come to the Mission – what do you want them to know?” The enclosed handout is what our men came up with. Every word and photo on the flier is something that one of our men insisted MUST be shown or shared. We think the attached flier is warm, welcoming and winsome – please give it away to a homeless man. Perhaps they will make their way to the Mission and find a new and abundant life to enjoy.

Thanks so much for your support. I am grateful for all that you do for our residents. Your gifts are making life-giving, life-changing and life-saving differences in the lives of our men.

Your friend and co-worker,

Bob signature
