Dear Mary,
   I have no real words to describe how fortunate we are to receive this grant. 2020 was a great
title insurance business year but it was tragic for many charitable organizations that work so
hard to help the less fortunate. This grant will help Stomp The Blues Out of Homelessness, Inc.
set our foundation once again and move forward to the goals of helping those who are
homeless or near homeless in our community.
     Housing is something we sometimes take for granted and right now we need to stop and
remember how lucky or fortunate most of us are. I have seen many success stories in our
mission to help those who are homeless but I have witnessed many more stories that do not
have a positive ending. I have said for a long time that becoming homeless and living on the
street is much easier than reversing this pattern. Once you are there it is near impossible to
break the cycle.
Once again thank you for recognizing not only our need but recognizing the Good Deeds our
member do.
