The Iron County Care & Share is an incredible program the provides so many services to our community. It is our local feedbank, shelter, christmas box, and so much more. The Center has worked very hard in getting their new food bank up and running and is currently working on raising funds for their new shelter facility. Our current facility is not meeting the needs of our community and the need to increase in the number of rooms available to men, women and families. The property has been purchased and is just awaiting the funding to complete the project. In todays day and age a little bump in the road can be the difference between having a place to call home or even a place to stay for the night. There are so many that are counting on your generous contribution to help them fill in the gaps that their family needs until they can get on their feet. During this season I would ask that you look within your means and remember that because you have been given much that you too could give. Peace:)

As a member of the Board of Directors and past Chairman of Iron County Care and Share-Utah, I have been touched by the dedication and compassion of our staff. Sometimes a staff member has been, at one time, a homeless person or someone involved with drugs. Because of the focused interest of case workers, the day-to-day sucesses lead to recovery. The "family" atmosphere at ICCS develops confidence and trust. To see men homeless for 20 years or more, being housed in permanent housing, beginning to contribute to society, wanting to help others and looking people in the eye when talking to them, has humbled me. I can more clearly see that ALL people are God's children.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

forward thinking. Building a new food bank and going from a 1-car garage to a 5,200 square foot building. Beginning the process to build a new shelter. With the community, ICCS is preparing to have a community clinic and a mental health facility on ICCS's 4 acrea.

I have run this organization. Each new executive brings different strengths. I would like to find a way to fund non-profits without having to be constantly asking for money. Some kind a line-item in a state budget

Staff is not degreed, but they have great empathy, not "you poor people" attitudes. They just work hard, helping

It could finish building the shelter and the SRO housing we need. Add low income housing, not just for homeless, but the low income people in general. Many of our homeless have income. They just can't pay the rent that is adked

Ways to make it better...

My experience could not have been better

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

More long term employees and funding shortages

One thing I'd also say is that...

Getting to know people who have made bad choices and are struggling to improve has softened by heart. What courage they have

The Iron County Care & Share is a wonderful place. Everyone from the Executive Director, Bill Woods to the employees in the shelter, to those who stock the selves at the food bank are doing a stellar job. They meet and greet those people every day who need a 'hand up' and some assistance with food, lodging and counseling. They do it with a smile and are genuine in their care for those who need it most. Our community has been very supportive in all of our food drive activities and continue to support with donations of all kind. Many businesses voluntarily sponsor activities in an effort to help out in this tough economic time. I appreciate the support we receive from all those who reach out to help. Our board has been great to pitch in and support all of our activities with their time and resources. It makes me proud to be a part of this great organization. Tom Walker
