Adopt-A-Family, our “Annual Miracle,” succeeded again in 2013. Donors and volunteers came together during a very cold winter to provide new clothing, books, toys, and other gifts to 368 families and seniors. In total, you helped 1,331 of your low-income neighbors in need, including 723 children. Thank you!
Our free tax program expanded in 2014, as Judy O’Leary was helped by fellow volunteers Estrella Huerta and Vicki Taft. They prepared tax returns for 381 families, with an average income of $19,610. Over $467,000 in tax returns came back to our local economy.
In FY 2013, your support made possible:
- Safety net services like food, housing assistance, utilities assistance, and case management for 3,515 Coastsiders.
- 788 instances of crisis intervention
- 360 instances of client advocacy.
