We have so many blessings to count this year. Thanks to the generosity of donors at our October breakfast, we raised more than $65,000—nearly doubling what we raised the previous year. Italso meant we were able to receive a wonderful challenge grant of $25,000 given by the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation. We also received a generous gift of $10,000 from the Joan and Bruce Richard Family Foundation. When we think back just two years ago—when we were thinking about having to close our doors—it’s truly a humbling moment!

Mark your calendars for our third annual fundraising breakfast!

We’d love to have you join us to learn more about how we help women and single-parent families move from homelessness to hope and self-sufficiency. It’s a great way to start your day and includes music, fellowship, and inspiration. 

Our guest speaker will be Dr. Shonda Craft, Interim Dean, School of Health and Human Services at St. Cloud State University. One of our clients will also speak about how TLC helped her establish a new path to stability and success.

And thanks to the generosity of the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation, all gifts given as part of the fundraiser will be matched—up to a total of $25,000!

Step Up! Fundraising Breakfast Success Nets Theresa Living Center a $25,000 Challenge Grant

Our second annual Step Up! Fundraiser on October 26, 2016, was a smashing success—we raised more than $20,000 over our goal and received a matching challenge grant of $25,000, generously given by the Katherine B. Andersen Fund of The Saint Paul Foundation, which also underwrote the cost of the event. The breakfast was held at the Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville and featured keynote speaker Chris Coleman, Mayor of Saint Paul, and client speakers who talked about how Theresa Living Center helped them find stability and hope after a period of homelessness. Our deepest thanks to all who attended and gave a gift in support of our mission! 

Congratulations to our 2015 graduates!

Theresa Living Center celebrated the thirteen new graduates who completed their programs this spring with a ceremony and buffet supper for graduates, their families, supporters, and TLC volunteers and friends. The event, held on May 18, 2015, at the St. Casmir’s School Hall next door, featured guest speaker Dr. Marcia Wyatt, an educator and theologian who specializes in working with children and families challenged by the traditional academic process. Two current program participants also provided their thoughts on shaping the future for success. Graduates have completed a two-year program of rebuilding their self-sufficiency at Theresa Living Center, and now are living independently in their own homes. Congratulations to all of our 2015 graduates, and thanks to all of our volunteers and supporters for helping to make their success possible!
