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!
Our Second Annual "Step Up!" Fundraising Breakfast will be held on Wednesday, October 26, 7:30-8:30 AM at the Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville. Registration will start at 7:00 AM. We'll announce further details here soon—but watch your mailbox for our save-the-date postcard!
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!
Theresa Living Center was the first recipient of Power of 100 Southwest's quarterly charitable giving program.
