Mar 11Letter From The President – Spring 2022
Hello and welcome!
Following many challenging months, one thing has remained constant – people’s resiliency to move forward, adapt, and be there for one another. Thank you for helping make 2021 a success. We could not have gotten through the year without the support and dedication of people like you.
Here are just a few of the accomplishments that
you helped to create:
- Opened eight new communities, providing
homes to over 800 households.
- Hosted over 80 onsite COVID-19 vaccination
- Reached over 2,400 youth during out-ofschool
time delivering activity bags, online
tutoring, and other impactful support.
- Connected over 300 households to internet
access for transition to virtual work/learning.
- Donors gave $1.4 million for rent relief in 2021,
while staff helped residents access over $4.8
million in state and local emergency rental
