ST ANNES CENTER INC
November 18, 2010
I have served on the Board of St. Anne's Center for more than 10 years. One of the reasons I have served so long, and will continue to serve is that I believe in what St. Anne's is doing. Over the course of 10 years I have seen a lot of people's lives changed, people who have gone from hopeless situations to living a life of self sufficiency, from desperation to becoming productive members of the community. St. Anne's helps thousands of people each year, providing food, shelter, and important services including case management. I will continue to support St. Anne's through my service on the board as well as volunteering at the Center, financial support, and by encourageing others to get involved with what St. Anne's is doing. St. Anne's not only changes the lives of those who walk through their doors for help but also changes the lives of those who serve and support St. Anne's.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
When St. Anne's took in and helped a college age woman who was pregant. She had to leave the University and found herself homeless. She lived at the Center for months, receiving shelter, food, a safe enviorment and help with getting back into the community. With St. Anne's help she was able to get into an apartment, providing her and her baby a safe place she could call her own. And with the help of the community who support St. Anne's, they were able to help her furnish her new apartment.
Ways to make it better...
