Top 10 Reasons to Give to The Connection

by Sarah Dudzic, Director of Philanthropy

As we end the year, please take a moment to consider a donation to The Connection. I am always filled with gratitude at this time of year – for the good health of my family and friends, for having a place I call home, and for the good fortune of having grown up in a family that somehow always had “enough.” This year, I am particularly grateful to be part of the good work that The Connection does – from placing children in foster care and helping people avoid homelessness, to supporting individuals in recovery – The Connection changes lives!

And if you’re still not sure whether you should give, here are ten more reasons:

10
We keep children and families safe, with our supportive housing, foster care and reunification services.


9
Each year, we help 12,000 people, who would otherwise be homeless, and/or suffering
without help for their mental health, addiction, and other needs.


8
We make communities safer by helping people who re-entering their communities
after incarceration learn vocational and other life skills.


7
We are responding to the opioid crisis by treating individuals and educating the community.


6
We change the lives of families by helping pregnant and parenting moms
become sober, learn parenting skills, and find stable housing.


5
We offer shelter and programming to homeless youth,
90% of whom exit the program to stable housing and employment.


4
We innovate! Our Institute for Innovative Practice does research, evaluation, and consulting
to improve the social determinants of health in communities statewide.


3
Government contracts and grant funds don’t cover all our costs,
which means we rely on individual contributions to help us fill that gap.


2
Donations to The Connection are tax deductible.
Give to us, and Uncle Sam gives you a break!


1
Every dollar matters! A meaningful gift to you is a meaningful gift to us.
