The Partnership provides the support to our program participants - the men, women and families that are in our care, with a safe place to sleep, food to eat, job skills to secure and maintain a job, access to needed healthcare, and housing assistance to help them regain the ability to be productive citizens once again.

Your gift, no matter the size makes a difference to our residents. Thank you for your generous support.
