Mission of Love Charities’ Annual Report offers a summary of the non-profits activities throughout the year. The Annual Report details the human services offered and the accomplishments of Mission of Love Charities (MOLC) and gives an overview of financial activities. MOLC also takes this opportunity to thank donors and sponsors for their contributions.
In this, our 31st year, the Mission of Love Charities persists in its commitment to serve the most needy people of our region. Our mission has always been to serve homeless and low-income families and individuals, but with the severe impact of the COVID pandemic, the number of people who are coming to the Mission for assistance with food, rent, utilities, mental and primary care health care and other basic needs has increased dramatically. Indeed, most months more than 1,000 people receive food assistance at the Mission.
Over the last year, the Mission of Love Charities, has continued to make a number of improvements and advancements in its operations. This is no small accomplishment, given the difficulties of managing change in an organization steeped in tradition.
