Hi!

We wanted to send along another thanks and some updates from the last month. Thanks to you and over 200 other supporters, Tubman not only survived the month, but is on track to endure. It's impossible to overstate the impact of your donation. We saved 18 beds for homeless youth and children in our community- and ensured Tubman had the time to expand its support network to survive this moment. Please click this link: http://mad.ly/340333 and check out all the good news from the last month. Among the best news: Sierra Health has contributed $25,000 to a match campaign and if we can raise $25,000 in the next month, they will double it with a match.

At Tubman House, we constantly witness the power of community to transform lives. To be on the receiving end of that love and support this month has been unbelievable.

In gratitude,
Bridget and Blithe
Founders of Tubman House

Something happens when people experience immense hardship. It can be spirit breaking. Today we experienced the contrary! Somehow our hearts have broken open in a new way and made room for this vulnerability and unknown territory. We are realizing we are not alone in our work- and that if Tubman survives this blow, we will come away better due to the community that has gathered around it.

With huge gratitude we send this letter of thanks to you. We have witnessed such momentum since we sent our plea to Save Tubman. We are heartened by the power of community and are reassured that this cry for help reached families of heart and generosity across the nation.

At Tubman, we gathered and witnessed a readiness to fight beyond our wildest dreams. It left no choice but to rally and charge forward, not in bitterness, but in love and with spirit. We are now 70% percent closer to our goal of supporting our residents through a final month so that they may escape the pain of revisiting homelessness. This has not only lifted the staff, who wrap their heads around social issues and work daily to guide youth and their children, it has lifted the families we serve. Your act has messaged our youth that people ARE filled with love and that the power of community can overcome the blows of budget cuts made by the powerful and faraway.

Your donation promises stability in this hard time to each of our residents. Doug is one such resident. He and his fiancé arrived at Tubman 17 months ago stalled out after the birth of their children in quick succession. Since joining, Doug completed his GED, earned a scholarship for an intensive medical billing program, completed the program and earned grades high enough to get placed in a 260 hour externship. He just completed that externship and is searching relentlessly for place to begin his career. He also proved a devoted dad and committed to improving his relationship through weekly couples counseling. Doug and his family are a month away from moving into an affordable apartment that will provide the platform they need to continue forward into careers. If Tubman closes, the family will be sent back into the instability they have struggled to escape.

You have been a part of ensuring our families survive this moment. Thank you for your support, and for believing in our work and in the families of Tubman.

Warmly,
Blithe Raines and Bridget Alexander
