Summer Newsletter 2017Posted on August 15th, 2017
Dear Simpson Friends:
2017 is not only Simpson’s 35th Anniversary, it also marks my 5th year as Executive Director. Without a doubt, leading Simpson has been the toughest, most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I’m motivated by our mission – to house, support, and advocate for everyone experiencing homelessness in our community. And I’m motivated by the compassion and generosity I see every single day from our volunteers, donors, and supporters.
The current political climate is leaving a lot of us uneasy. The news signals potential policy decisions, particularly at the federal level that could reduce government support of housing programs. In response, Simpson is bearing down on our local work, dedicated to relationships with our program participants and community partners.
When we look at the big picture, in light of the resources that exist across our country – homelessness is an immensely “solvable” problem. Simpson is committed to exploring creative solutions with government, business, faith communities, and philanthropic partners.
After 35 years, our resolve is stronger than ever to expand and improve our programming to end homelessness. We are honored to do this work on behalf of this beautifully diverse community and
we invite you join us. You can view our summer newsletter here and check out pages 6–8 for 35 Ways to Get Involved with Simpson.
