SPONSORSHIP APPEAL LETTER
Dear Supporter of Abigail's Place
I would like to introduce you to Natalie.
Natalie is a single mother with three daughters and a son. She is a great mom and a hard worker. In fact, she is employed in the medical industry where she cares for others every day, and often picks up extra shifts in order to care for her children as best she can. However, because of broken relationships and some unfortunate circumstances, she finds herself facing episodic homelessness.
Fortunately, Natalie was made aware of Abigail’s Place by one of our strategic partners.
After a quick interview, Natalie and her family were offered a safe place to stay in one of our homes. The family no longer has to worry about where they will sleep or eat their next meal. The stability offered by Abigail’s Place makes it possible for Natalie to focus on improving her financial situation in order to secure permanent housing for her family. She said: “it’s like I get to hit the reset button.”
There are many more “Natalie’s” with young children in our community. Abigail’s Place is a relief organization that was established to support single mothers throughout Fort Bend County, just like Natalie, by providing transitional housing and restoring hope during a time of family crisis. In just three short years, Abigail’s Place has helped combat episodic homelessness by supporting over 300 families.
Currently, Abigail’s Place has three units that provide temporary housing for up to 12 families a year. In addition to our transitional housing units, we offer help to many other families through assistance with such things as hotel stays and rent/deposits. By partnering with others like you, we plan to increase our impact by enlarging our shelter capacity to ten single-family housing units.
WE HAVE A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS IN MOVING OUR FAMILIES OUT OF HOMELESSNESS INTO PERMANENCY.
Please join us in impacting families throughout our community by becoming a sponsor for our annual “Puttin’ on the Glitz” Gala. We’ve enclosed sponsorship information for this opportunity and would love to speak with you further about our organization and the benefits that you, as a donor, would receive.
Please do not hesitate to call if you have questions or would like additional information.
Executive Director, Abigail’s Place
