Thank you so much for all the help you
give to people in need in our community. I was talking to my disabled
son today on the phone and I told him not to worry because I got
the help we needed. Thanks to the Crisis & Information Hotline,
we won't be left in the dark anymore: our lights will be turned
back on tonight.
