Services to End and Prevent Homelessness
On behalf of the Planning Committee, I would like to thank you for participating in the 2023 Nadim Khan Memorial Homeless Resource Day on Thursday, October 19, 2023 .The success of the day was largely due to your contribution and hard work. I am happy to report that there were 70 service providers that served over 350 individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness in our community. Our guests received flu shots, health and benefit eligibility screenings, many submitted employment applications and applied to receive a MVA non-driver’s identification card. Our guests were pleased. Some who received free coats were brought to tears. Other enjoyed the personal care services and received haircuts and manicures.

Dear National Council of Negro Women,
On behalf of Shepherd's Table, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the consistent and generous support received from the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW).
Your monthly donations of essential items have profoundly impacted the lives of those we serve. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for the boxes of adult pull-ups, dozens of undergarments, and female hygiene items that cater to the diverse needs of our clients.
Your donations have been a significant help to our clients. As you know, our primary goal for the Resource Center is to ensure that we can provide quality daily essential products to everyone who stops by our window. Your contributions have allowed us to support over 50-80 women with essential items, ranging from hygiene products to pullups and underwear, during our Clothing Closet and Resource Center hours.
The positive effects of your support are immeasurable, and we are deeply grateful for the tangible difference it has made in the lives of the individuals we serve. Your commitment to the well-being of our community aligns seamlessly with our mission, and we are honored to have NCNW as a valued partner.
None of this would be possible without supporters like you. Thank you for your donations!
On the day of the event, we started at 7:30am until 3p. Our PIC teams work in packing, loading, unpacking and setting up were outstanding! What great commitment our Sisters gave! And we had fun too!
Our members included: Barbara Boney, Francene Davis, Hettie Fleming, Pat Jackson, Sherry Isom, Erin Lee, Maureen Price, Shirley Osborne, and Shakena Warren. 'Congratulations to our Section for a job well done'!
Special thanks to Deacon Fleming, Deacon Wiggins, and Brother Chyp Davis who gave us tremendous help in carrying large bins and boxes to our table sites. We also want to thank Mount Calvary's Missionaries as we partnered again in serving the community. The Church administrative office gave us great support in setting up working space and allowing us to drop off donations there.
