These are unprecedented times. COVID-19 (coronavirus) is a global pandemic and a national emergency, and nobody is certain what the days ahead hold.

The safety and well-being of our clients and staff are our primary concern. And with the nature of this virus, this presents significant challenges for the Mission. We will continue to update this page with information regarding changes and most important needs for our client. Check back often, and stay well.


Please consider a DONATION of any amount, or set up your own FUNDRAISER and invite your friends and family to donate.
