Happy Easter and blessed Passover!

Spring is unmistakably upon us. It’s a time of renewal, new beginnings, and often a time of hope. As I look at all of the wonderful things that are happening in our community to help our guests – men, women, and children of Sacramento who are experiencing homelessness – I, too, feel especially hopeful.

The Sacramento city and county partnership for Pathways to Health and Housing officially begins this month, providing outreach and connection to services and housing. The city’s temporary winter shelter has successfully moved some of their guests to housing in the short time that it has been open. Hope and renewal are constant spring themes, but both feel closer at hand this time.

These new initiatives are a critical addition to our own system of services at Loaves & Fishes. Our guests look to us not just for basic survival services, but for connections to the many resources that must come together to end homelessness. Until the day when homelessness in California finally begins to dwindle, Loaves & Fishes will offer a warm welcome and a wide range of survival services to our guests.

Your donations make that new beginning so much more than a vague hope. Because of your help, Annie, her two toddlers, and her husband moved into permanent housing on February 1st. Annie and her family came to our Maryhouse program shortly after Christmas, having spent over two weeks in a motel and being forced to live in their car. While Annie’s husband worked she and her children spent their days with our wonderful Maryhouse staff, whose care and connections ultimately led Annie to a permanent home.

I look forward to brave new beginnings like Annie’s every day, none of which would be possible without you. Please make a donation to Loaves & Fishes today, and help us add more and more success stories to our growing community of hope.

Thank you again for your continued support, and for making such a profound difference in our community.

Gratefully and sincerely,

Noel Kammermann
Executive Director
