I commend the Sulzbacher Center for finding ways to keep their many different services and departments in operation, especially in the current economic climate. They offer everything needed to help get people back on their feet. I appreciate their creative methods of reaching out to the community to raise funds. Their functions are interesting and personable. The center continues to transform many many lives, and is an important part of Jacksonville's community.

The Sulzbacher Center for the Homeless is a God-send to the thousands of people who find themselves in difficult financial and personal crises. Without the care of Sulzbacher Center, Jacksonville would have people who have no place to shelter, eat and be safe. The Sulzbacher Center helps men,women and familes find a safe-haven to get their lives in order and start feeling confidence in their future. The programs offered by Sulzbacher Center and other volunteer organizations and churches give support spiritually, mentally and physically. No one is turned away for the meals that are shared. I have served meals and talked with many of the men and famlies and I find them to be hopeful for their future because of the Sulzbacher Center. The staff has a huge heart for those sheltered there and they truely care about getting them back on the road to a productive life.
