This blog isn’t about how thankful I am you support St. Lawrence Place and our homeless families with children – if I’ve been doing my job throughout the year you should already know that.
This isn’t about your resolutions, my resolutions, or the resolutions of the families currently calling SLP home – we all want to be the best we can be in 2016.

These services and supplies enable our families to focus on their most important goal – obtaining skills needed to succeed in permanent housing.
And sometimes a partnership comes along that provides two much-needed items: money and food! READ MORE
