Thanks to you, our generous supporters, we reached our #GivingTuesday goal and raised $37,000 from more
than 60 donors!
Also, our new video, “This is how we solve homelessness,” was shared on social media 70 times and reached more than 6,600 people. We thank our video production partners, Mike Martin Media, as well as the many board members, volunteers, staff and members of the media who helped make #GivingTuesday #VideoReleaseDay such a BIG success.
St. Patrick Center is a leader in ending homelessness. We provided housing support to nearly 22-hundred clients and their families this year. That’s a lot of lives improved — 600 of those were new housing placements!
Ending homelessness requires resources. Half of our funding comes from the generosity of St. Louis area individuals and businesses. Please continue to invest in St. Patrick Center.
