Lynda came to PISI in rough shape. She struggled with serious health issues that made it difficult to maintain work. After seeking refuge at the Shelter and having her needs cared for, she soon moved into PISI’s supported housing. She was able to receive government funding for her disability and learned how to start budgeting. Thanks to your funding, PISI helped Lynda find housing she could afford, in a safe community and also provided household items to help her set up her new home. While Lynda was thrilled to move into her own place, she missed her loving community at PISI. “I felt like I was leaving friends and family,” she says. That’s where PISI’s aftercare comes in. PISI helps former guests find stability and community as they move into independent housing. Staff makes regular home visits to check on former guests and ensure they are doing alright. PISI got me a couch and a bed.” Lynda says. “I look forward to the visits. And obviously they help a great deal.” Your donations help has made a difference to lots of others too. Your support provides a place to call home and a new beginning for guests like Lynda. Thank you for providing hope and security to those most in need in our community!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more office space. PISI has a long waiting list of people wanting their services but they don't have the office space to accommodate them. I wish more people and companies would donate.
