We fund-raise in order to raise enough money for our operations needs to help keep our Initiatives running. We hope we make a convincing case for support for each of our program area on this website. However, we are also looking forward to expand our facilities as the number of people we serve continue to grow each day, therefore we also have a support need for capital projects.
