A Note From Evelyn

Dear Friends,

After another challenging year we at Urban Services are still here. And the services we provide are more in demand than ever. Since the beginning of the one of the biggest crises affecting everyone on the globe, Urban Services’s doors have stayed open, continuing to serve the increasing numbers of youth and families in need.

With humbling strength, adaptability, and perseverance, our dedicated team of employees and volunteers found creative ways to continue and expand services to our community. They bring great care and compassion to the communities who need it most:

  •  In-person essential services, including emergency rental and housing assistance, diapers, and transportation tokens, are being provided at our four Family and Community Resource Centers, meeting demand that has more than tripled since March 2020.
  •  Supporting and implementing COVID-19 test and vaccination sites for isolated communities that would otherwise not have access to these critical health supports.
  •  Food pantries at the Resource Centers and other sites, such as our Denman Beacon Center, collectively serve more than 1,000 individuals and families weekly.
  •  Virtual services allow our education, workforce, mentoring, and mental health programs to continue to operate to help our youth re-engage with school, train for a job, interact with a caring adult, and find the emotional support they need to thrive.

For over 25 years we have been committed to helping our neighbors thrive. We are here through this difficult time and we will celebrate together as we continue to shape this new way of being in the world.

Pour Your Support, now in its 20th year, was created to make sure that we continue to serve those in need now – and in the future. Funds raised via this event will help ensure we can continue our work to provide critical services to the thousands of youth and families who rely on our programs now more than ever. We would love to count on your support as a partner and guest! Please join us on March 4th, 2022 and consider sponsoring this event and investing in our community and our future.
