The Whatsoever You Do Outreach Program has been active at Little Flower for going on thirty years. That may be news to some people attending Mass today. The Outreach Program has evolved over the years; today, the program assists families primarily with paying utility bills, especially to avoid disconnection, and rent, especially to avoid eviction. We wish we could do more. We receive 175-200 calls each month and are limited to helping 30-35 families. Most of the available funds are committed in the first week of each month, typically between $5,000-$6,000. Once we help a family, they cannot receive further assistance for at least four months. That enables us to help more families. The parish tithes $1,500 each month to the Outreach Program. Donations through the green envelopes provide the balance needed. The generosity of parishioners and guests has been amazing, but the needs of families in the community are daunting. Please consider becoming a new donor or a regular donor. Thank you from the entire Outreach staff (all volunteers).
