Updates on Our Fall River Expansion
Date: November 7, 2012 Author: Erich Miller, President

In every endeavor, our leadership asks the question, “Are we following God’s will?” It’s a difficult question… how can we know with certainty?

The late Father Richard Sullivan CSC, a founding board member, gave us wise yet practical advice: “If you’re prayerfully working towards a goal and things move forward relatively smoothly, you can be confident your actions are in keeping with God’s will. If you’re constantly running into roadblocks, though, God may be trying to tell you something.”

We are happy to say our efforts to expand to Fall River have gone very smoothly so we feel affirmed that God is indeed calling us to shine our light brighter and in new places. Here are some updates on our progress:

  • We’ve made 40 furniture deliveries in 2012 to families in need in Fall River
  • Families’ reaction to the crucifix and the quality of our service has been overwhelming
  • We’ve gotten great feedback from caseworkers at Citizens for Citizens, the Fall River nonprofit referring people in need to us
  • We had very positive introductory meetings with Mayor William Flanagan of Fall River and Superintendent
  • Meg Mayo-Brown, head of Fall River Public Schools
  • Our own volunteers and supporters have been extremely encouraging… one example: we recently received a $10,000 gift from a generous donor designated for our Fall River expansion
  • We’ve received project funding from The Yawkey Foundation and our request is currently under consideration by two other major foundations
  • The director of one prominent Massachusetts foundation reviewed our Fall River business plan and described it as “thoughtful, smart and clear!!! The BEST plan I have seen in a long time.”
