Catholic Charities, Inc.
November 4, 2010
I began serving on the advisory board for St Anthony Family Shelter, a Catholic Charities of Wichita supported organization, about 2 years ago. I have served on numerous civic and charitable organization boards over the years. I can honestly say that my experience with SAFS/CC has been the best of all. SAFS provides not only a temporary home for displaced families, it provides education and referrals to help families break out of the cycle of poverty and hopelessness. I feel very strongly that time, talent or money invested in SAFS/CC is an investment in helping families grow out of poverty.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing families break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness to become self sufficient.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
More effectively promote its positive impact on the problem of family homelessness.
Board Member & I helped provide guidance and assistance to professional staff on fundrasing, programming and operational matters.
