“The core of our work continued to be providing services geared toward helping people meet their everyday basic needs – primarily food and shelter. At the same time, we continued to nurture innovative, successful initiatives that help ensure that people living in poverty find their way to economic stability, and that those who are there do not slip back into poverty.” -Tammy Miner -Peter DeBiasi
