Through my employment with another non-profit agency in Jacksonville, I worked closely with the Sulzbacher Center. They do an excellent job providing the needed services for the homeless, especially as the economy worsens and more people are in need of their services. The health care clinic is a phenomenal service. It is also really wonderful that Sulzbacher makes an effort to reach out to other non-profits to collaborate in order to better provide for the needs of their residents. They have also done an excellent job assessing the primary needs of residents, and as budgets shrink ensure that the most necessary services stay (like the health care clinics and free meals for the city's homeless). I think there has also been an increase in Sulzbacher's identity within the Jacksonville community, which is very beneficial for fundraising. It is great that they have started to let people know how hard they work and all of the services that they provide. Of course, in the field of the non-profits, there is always more to do. It would be great if Sulzbacher could one day provide daycare for its residents. But, these things need money, and that is so scarce these days. I salute them for the hard work that they do!
