Campaign for Sustainable Growth
83% of the way to our $500,000 goal!
As we celebrate over 25 years of accomplishments, we are responsibly making plans for the future sustainability of Deborah’s Place. This $500,000 campaign will make it possible for us to sustain current critical supportive housing and services, adapt to changes in a volatile funding environment and steward Deborah’s Place into the future.
With this campaign we will:
- Revitalize our buildings at 1530 N. Sedgwick Avenue, where over 100 women each year are supported in their efforts to regain self-sufficiency through the 3 housing programs at that site.
- Build operational and capital reserves in order to address future capital improvements and sustain financial stability, as well as increase our capacity to respond to opportunities that further the mission.
A successful campaign will ensure that Deborah’s Place continues to have the resources needed to be a catalyst for change not only in the lives of women who are homeless but in the homeless service system.
Together we can secure the future of Deborah’s Place.
