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.
