THE 2012 TIKVA LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN IS APPROACHING

We know the list of charities approaching you is long and growing. We know that you have your own charitable priorities but we hope that this year you WILL consider THS as one of them. Your gift – whatever you are able to offer – WILL help us provide subsidized housing; WILL help those in the Jewish community bridge the gap between homelessness and poverty; WILL help them regain their strength and their self confidence to build a better life for themselves and their families.

It ALL starts with housing – together, we CAN make a difference – one home at a time.
