I was asked to join the volunteer Board this year by a good friend and former business associate. I've only been involved for a few short months, but I've already been pleasantly surprised by the level of commitment by both the volunteers and the employees. I was surprised to discover that very few, if any, of the other counties in Southeast Michigan offer this kind of assistance to the homeless. I really like the fact that this organization is not a permanent solution for the people that we help, but rather a starting point for them to make it on their own, and to have a better life than they had when we first met them.

SAWC changes all of our lives AND our Community by compassionately assisting the most forgotten segment of our society; single, adult males and females who are experiencing homelessness and who, often, are experiencing a myriad of physical, medical and/or emotional issues. This is a difficult population to serve, but the dedicated staff does it with grace and genuine warmth....AND with an outstanding level of success! Hope truly does happen at The Delonis Center and I am proud to be a small part of it!!

The Shelter Association's approach to homelessness works. Clients show up with very little hope and no resources. With the help of Shelter staff, clients develop a better sense of themselves and their place in the world. They come to see that a home is achievable, and working with that vision, most leave the shelter and move to sustainable housing.

The Shelter Association has been doing great work in our community for over 30 years. It has the mission of "ending homelessness one person at a time". They are effective in doing this having housed over 200 individuals last year.

The staff members are dedicated professionals. The
Board members are committed to keeping the organization one of the best in Washtenaw County.

We are lucky to have them in our community.

It is every communities responsibility to provide help for the homeless. The Shelter Association of Washtenaw County has provided this help and is an example of how many caring people coming together to support those in need can accomplish so much. The leadership, staff and community can all be proud of the work done at the Delonis Center.

The Shelter Association of Washtenwaw County makes our community a better place. This non profit reaches out to homeless men and women in order to help them secure housing, find employment, receive medical help and so much more. I am proud to be a Board member and be part of the solution of giving guidance and care to those who need it. The staff are expert at what they do and our many volunteers allow us to provide additional support.

This organization is remarkable, with a mission of "ending homelessness one person at a time" the staff provide services, employment assistance, substance abuse, housing for Vets, & case managers that teach life skills so once a client is housed they are successful. The staff are smart, thoughtful and passionate about the clients they serve.

The Shelter Association of Washtenaw County is dedicated to ending homelessness. They do it every day and house one person every 2 days.

They also work with other community service providers to impact public and community policy and procedures to improve the system of care. In this
way they contribute to ending homelessness in our community.

The staff members are dedicated and work tirelessly to find solutions for the people they work with. If there is a solution, they will find it.

I worked with others to found the first shelter in Ann Arbor, called Arbor Haven. So I have been watching the problem of homelessness for many years. I am grateful for the efforts of so many people to create the Delonis Shelter and to keep it going. It has expanded its services to meet the growing need. The recent brutal winter was a crisis for homeless people, and Delonis is again stepping up its services in response. I am relieved to know that there will be a warm place for homeless people to sleep when winter comes again.
What is still needed is a warming center open during the day. This is not necessarily a mission for Delonis, which is doing so much already. Bill Martin used to furnish a space on Ashley Street, but that building no longer exists. Somewhere, somehow, our community must find a way to meet this need.
