Dear Friends and Family,
I am proud to serve as Board Chair for Saint John’s Program for Real Change. As a member of the Saint John’s Board since 2014, I am frequently inspired by the women and children doing their best every day to make permanent change in their lives.
Based on over 35 years of experience, their proven and replicable model empowers single-mother-led families to overcome multiple barriers to employment and self-sustainability and to permanently escape the cycle of poverty and dependence.
Saint John’s has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with more than 200 formerly homeless women and children currently sheltering in place on their campuses. The closure of their two restaurants and catering business, Plates Café and Catering and Plates Midtown, the cancellation or postponement of multiple fundraising events and the closing of the campus to the more-than-450 volunteers each month who help support daily operations (1650 hours/month) has resulted in a significant financial loss that is quickly escalating. In addition, with all women and children quarantined on our campuses 24/7, utilities, food and supply costs have increased. Saint John’s is now facing a deficit of up to $150,000 per month to keep all operations up and running.
To continue services for the more than 200 women and children who are desperate for a safe and productive place to get their lives on track, I invite you to donate today. Saint John's not only means a lot to our community, but to me personally as well.
You can donate now (any amount, large or small) by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right. You may give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds.
Thank you for joining me and supporting the women and children at Saint John's!
Wishing you and your loved one’s health and safety.
