First Light serves women who have been surviving on the streets and those who have recently become homeless. We give them emergency shelter and essential social services, which can lead to full independence later. The task is monumental and we need your help. Your contribution does make a difference.
So, where does your money go? Of our expenditures in fiscal year 2012-13:
- 90% were emergency shelter and permanenet supportive housing expenses
- 8.1% were management and general expenses
- 1.9% were fundraising expenses
160 emergency shelter guests were placed in either transitional or permanent housing settings, and all guests received a mental health assessment and appropriate referrals. We could not do this without YOUR support. Thank you.
