To alleviate homelessness and hunger in the Milford area through shelter, support services, advocacy and community education in partnership with the faith-based community and in collaboration with public and private organizations.
I became involved with the Beth-El Center when a friend introduced me to Toni Dolan. I learned that hunger and homelessness are not merely urban problems; they occur in our community. Seeing what the dedicated staff at Beth-El is able to do with limited resources made me want to help. I am honored to lead a group of volunteers who are committee to making a difference.
Our current goals are to provide the resources necessary for clients to move to self-sufficiency and to assist, on a local level, in the goals of the federal plan to end homelessness.
We will be doing an analysis of the number of people served to make a determination as to whether this program should continue in its present format, or should be expanded into an evening meal that is served in the soup kitchen.
