need of repair and maintenance to assure the safety and dignity of its buildings. In addition, the continuum
of specialized programs we provide is stretched to the brink and in need of supplemental funding to serve
people in need. Further, expanding our Legacy Endowment will ensure those in need for generations to come
will be able to access services that really work. Your generous gift will protect essential services for years to
