"What I love about Citizens Inn is that they are actually breaking the patterns of homelessness and hunger. They help people to create real change, and are a beacon of hope for so many in a time when they need it most."

"I firmly believe that every person deserves to have a place to call home. A home where they feel safe and secure and can eat three meals a day. A home to shelter them from the rain and a yard to play in and grow a garden. No person should ever have to worry about where they are going to sleep or get their next meal. Citizens Inn is a front runner in helping this dream become a reality. I applaud their efforts and will do my best to further their mission."

"I am drawn to the mission of Citizens Inn as it provides opportunities for all people to thrive in our community. When issues of housing and food insecurity are met, people can better provide for themselves, take care of their families, and have more opportunities to control their destiny and achieve their goals in life."
