2015 Annual Report
We celebrated our 10th Anniversary in 2015!
It's difficult to image how far we've come in ten years. It has only been possible through the generous support of our amazing community here in Monroe.
With only six part time staff, barely three full time equivalents, we rely upon nearly 300 volunteers who gave us over 11,000 hours of their time in 2015 to help us carry out our mission to offer friendship, help, and hope to our neighbors in need...of all ages.
