HARMONY PLACE INC wrote -Harmony Place is a struggling non-profit that needs more support for its important work! While receiving a good amount of income from government grants, United Way, and private organizations and individuals, many times the timing of receipt of our funds does not match when our bills are due. We often have to wait 3 or more months to be reimbursed for our out-of-pocket expenditures and our pockets are usually empty! We serve hundreds of people each year -- many around the clock at our emergency shelter. Our hope is that through this campaign, we will build a fund that will enable us to weather on-going and emergency needs, help us get out of debt, and keep our doors wide open to those who need us! Any amount is appreciated!
