If Bernie Sanders could raise as much money as he did with small donations, perhaps Sojourners' Alliance could market donations at $2.50-$5.00 a person.. also, if former clients are willing.. spotlight a few of them with their success story.

>> Sojourners' Alliance was informed Monday they will not be receiving the $100,000 Moscow Transitional Housing Grant that has sustained their operations for the last 19 years.
>> "I'm just shocked. Breathless," said Steve Bonnar, Executive Director. "There had been discussion that HUD was changing their priorities over the next couple of years. We've been planning for a transition on that timeframe." The agency now has to begin filling a $100,000 gap by June 1.
>> "We have plans to switch to the newly preferred HUD model," said Bonnar. They can't do it with thirty days notice. "We need a chance to catch our breath."
>> Latah County Commissioner Tom Lamar is deeply concerned. "People aren't aware of the breadth of services they offer. They have programs for homelessness, mental health, addictions..." Sojourners' Alliance provides shelters for men, women and families. Based on funding availability, Sojourners' Alliance has provided rental and utility assistance to those in crisis.
>> "I've pulled together representatives from the county, hospital and other concerned parties to help them fill the funding gap. If we don't succeed thirty of Latah counties most fragile residents could be homeless as early as June 1."
