I am honored to be a part of the Shade Tree because it ofers more than a safe, warm place to sleep. Since opening its doors more than two decades ago, women and children have been given the tools to experience a genuine sense of pride in achielving independance. The program is constantly evolving to address the changing needs and issues of homelessness in our community. From job development to healthcare, to a co-located animal shelter for the furry family members...the Shade Tree reinvents itself over and over again as the needs of the clients change. I am so grateful to be able to watch the women and children flourish because The Shade Tree is mroe than a shelter!

Being a part of this amazing organization for over ten years has been has been as much for me as it is for the women and children we serve. I am reminded daily of the strength and courage that these women have under the worst circumstances. I am also reminded that it is not about destiny, but rather the choices one makes. The Shade Tree not only provides safe shelter and balanced meals for those who are experiencing homelessness and financial crisis, but it is made up of many programs which are offered to provide the tools and resources to break the cycle of homelessness. I can't think of a better inspiration than the women and children who fill our corridors with hope, laughter and tears. Credit goes to the patient and dedicated staff who insure that the shelter is a safe and inspiring space during time of desperation.
