We strive to be a ministry that grows our income at the same pace as we grow our expenditure. We strive to remain a very cost effective and low-to-the-ground ministry. We also strive to save sufficient funds each year so that we build and maintain adequate savings margin to weather short-term storms and rise to challenges from time to time. Such an occasion is our opening of our drop-in center on Jan 6, 2016. We have committed our operating reserves to expanding ahead of our financial capabilities temporarily. To stay whole, we must raise an additional $200,000 to operate the drop-in incrementally through the end of 2017. This is on top of our ongoing operational budget. We seek expanded and new giving to help us deliver this critical resource that has been in the same location as our drop-in center for 15 years prior, serving hundreds of street-dependent youth every year. Without that new funding, the doors would indeed be closing on these vulnerable young people. We are committed to avoiding that.
