we are doing and for working so hard to make it possible.
I have never met a more beautiful group of people to take this on.
Today, we saw 129 different people come through the doors of Temple Beth Hatfiloh between the hours of 7am and 1pm that received respite from the rain and cold at our warming center. Some were able to sleep after walking the streets all night long and others were able to connect to vital social services with the help of our staff. So far we have seen an average of 65 different people per day at the warming center. This is a daily success in our community that I am proud to be a part of and so grateful to the faith communities of First Christian Church, Temple Beth Hatfiloh and the
United Churches for partnering with us on.
Tonight, I reflect upon all the work that has been done this year, all that is left to do, and how much could change if we could deeply commit to recognizing the humanity in one another.
This is a commitment that I will make for the coming year--will you join me?
Thank you to our community for supporting us this year and please continue to stay involved in making this a city that we are all an integral part of!!
