Our Thanks to You

As we enter 2014, I'd like to express my sincerest appreciation for the outpouring
of support we received throughout the year, and particularly during the holiday
season. Thanks to your generosity, every single child and adult in our programs
received holiday gifts and festive meals.
Your contributions demonstrate to our families that their neighbors are caring and
compassionate. As a contributing community member, you help brighten the lives of
children like 4-year-old Elisa [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001XWcYpo77dqCBKxSh9U2ZleG1MNEBP4DP_o-3lRid14zWO2Bg-ZhSKkEQQbi4lJs9mDNpFdCzefggbm3y_fsfM59oFhjk4ufgFgOlr-9sD0V2JrnYrU_Qs1BX2-XAR6GR76zQTBORzZ8fxUBaTBrooEfI4hrY7YUXqq27VT-n3mQc34DHTtf-S5nJq7g5zzPtrkbUqqtqAg12d_fT7rrNPuOx1QIEplM3&c=o4BnM-QsyENA4wUJiecoBB_6eBYEtMd3YxFGQj7b8GkZNQtVELZ-hA==&ch=JQ-JY5pwhqLRscN84JKzMnGyE3FTd_vAHk1NQ3b-5oDMLu0pqxQ9mA==],
whose holiday wish was a home for her mother and sister.

With your support, we will continue our work to end homelessness for every family
and individual in our community.

With gratitude,

Villa Shelter for Homeless Families Re-opens After Fire Renovations

Last April, IVSN's Villa shelter in San Jose [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001XWcYpo77dqCBKxSh9U2ZleG1MNEBP4DP_o-3lRid14zWO2Bg-ZhSKtk6pOySefcKigZWVsdUSihZDwsar_7ZuVJFe4_7q_yUcZpRBnlD4YDUfvBnCmTqiuBBcbTbsH7tReXHzJNTSh6EMOO35X_VDNoiUgIwyX2JkcNRxz2LO6VgJNQSGW-HUB_AXE1hccZbsrkPqOplLQsv3MSePVpjVQ==&c=o4BnM-QsyENA4wUJiecoBB_6eBYEtMd3YxFGQj7b8GkZNQtVELZ-hA==&ch=JQ-JY5pwhqLRscN84JKzMnGyE3FTd_vAHk1NQ3b-5oDMLu0pqxQ9mA==]
experienced a fire, and 50 homeless adults and children were temporarily relocated.
Local community members and corporations stepped up to support the fire relief effort
and renovations.

Thanks to the community's generosity, the Villa has re-opened! Residents moved back
into the Villa just in time for the holidays, and they were welcomed with a festive
party hosted by local Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops.

Merger Success

After 18 months as a merged organization, we are proud of the progress we've made
in advancing our mission of ending homelessness. Here are a few highlights:


* We hired more case managers to improve the quality of care for our clients and
 provide more effective services that promote self-sufficiency.
* We moved our main office to a more central location to better serve clients at
 our 18 shelters. Special thanks to Bohannan Development Company [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001XWcYpo77dqCBKxSh9U2ZleG1MNEBP4DP_o-3lRid14zWO2Bg-ZhSKtk6pOySefcKnJxTqLKrUXmiKdIdw99HrNTeX5mymyYbMitcIm-bIbYjxnvgZ-jb2CZ7V_URQBqQCAgyIqlDbhk1qfFG_YdC_ZvqZ8yGPBuz6yZbKbvZpaU=&c=o4BnM-QsyENA4wUJiecoBB_6eBYEtMd3YxFGQj7b8GkZNQtVELZ-hA==&ch=JQ-JY5pwhqLRscN84JKzMnGyE3FTd_vAHk1NQ3b-5oDMLu0pqxQ9mA==]

toward client services!
