Plea Update: Off To A Good Start
Greatly Appreciated Donations are Helping, But Need Is Still There...
This time of year, especially this week with the frigid temperatures we are expecting, is not a good time to contemplate being homeless, but at the current time all our beds are full with folks who for one reason or another do not have a home of their own. We expect that before the week is over, law enforcement people will be bringing in more folks that are out on the street in sub-freezing weather. We will take them in even if we have no place for them but the floor. This is the spirit of the Tuscarawas County community, but we can only continue this safety net if the individuals within the community continue to support us, financially.
Check our financial statement from the year 2018. It shows how much it costs to maintain this service. Some generous folks came through for us last week, and made it possible for us to pay our staff, but we still have over $15,000 in bills that are due to be paid, and another payroll on February 8. So we need further support quickly.
Our board of directors is making plans to more adequately finance our efforts so that we can avoid situations like we have now, but this will take time, more time than we have to avoid this crisis, so, for now, we have to depend on those of you who recognize the importance of what we do.
