Puerto Seguro shares facility success story
For many contributors to the Puerto Seguro Safe Harbor what activities and services are offered is unclear. Most contributors know that what we do is essential for our clients’ well being, but little is revealed about our clientele itself. Who do we serve, how frequent do the clients in need visit the facility, and possibly most important, does the service provided really help and improve the lives of the people served.
We know Puerto Seguro Safe Harbor provides solid assists to help people turn their lives around, but generally when things get better for someone they don’t let us know, or only do so verbally.
We hope the letter reproduced below will be of real interest to all contributors:
To: Dwayne Baker
I would like to take the time to thank you and the entire staff for your overwhelming generosity and support I have received throughout the years. Over the last couple of years I have utilized your laundry facilities, lunch program, food box program and clothing. Also just recently you were nice enough to give me gas money so I was able to get my state certification to be a certified nursing assistant. Your generosity throughout the years has helped out with my basic needs as well as my self-esteem and dignity. Once again. I would not be where I am today without you and your facility.
Clearly, this is a success story for everybody. Contributors and volunteers should feel good knowing that your help made such a fine letter (and success story) possible.
As we approach winter, we are experiencing very heavy demands. The Socorro Electric is taking a very difficult position regarding cutting off service to delinquent subscribers. Heating and other basic utilities are being threatened. Plus the number of services supplied last month was over 20 percent more than a year ago…more folks in need.
We need your help and if you fine folks are moved to financially help PSI-Safe Harbor you would be helping many like Mark Montano. Just mail your check to Puerto Seguro Safe Harbor, P.O. Box 1433, Socorro, 87801.
Treasurer, PSI-Safe Harbor
A very good friend of mine, attests to the good deeds done in this small town by a small group of exceptionally extraordinary people . El Puerto Seguro reminds us to never forget the less fortunate.
