Fiscal year 2012 was a great year for Carpenter’s Shelter. Last year we served 295 men women and children in the residential shelter, 395 chronically homeless individuals at David’s Place, and provided a safe place to sleep for 282 individuals through the Winter Shelter. We placed 97 individuals and families into stable housing, and continued to offer supportive services to 418 clients participating in Community Case Management. 1,179 volunteers stepped through our doors, dedicating 17,726 hours of services to the shelter. Our scholarship committee awarded $11,228 to clients and former clients looking to further their education. Our meal volunteers prepared 77,345 individuals meals for clients and David’s Place members, with no cost to the shelter. We are incredibly lucky to have such dedicated supporters and volunteers. Because of your support, we continue to work toward ending homelessness. Here’s to another great year at Carpenter’s Shelter.
