Rationale for supporting Fred Victor
- The work that Fred Victor does is aligned with our EA vision to provide symptomatic relief and support to those whose lives are precarious. Fred Victor provides long-term affordable housing to people living in poverty. It also provides skills training in catering and restaurant offerings.
- This year, we have focused our donation on their Friends Catering division in order to support job training for people trying to restart their careers.
- We also see other opportunities to partner with Fred Victor in its advocacy support of the homeless.
- There is a long history of financial and volunteer support from our congregation.
