We write to you to inform you that St. Cabrini Home, Inc. is undergoing significant change. Due to funding issues, we were forced to make a very painful decision. We had no choice but to close our Residential Treatment Center at the end of February and our Community Group Home Program at the end of June. We did everything possible to save our programs. However, given the inadequacy of the funding available to us and the changing orientation for the provision of service in the child welfare system, closure was inevitable.

Please be assured that during this time all donations and gifts received have been used to support the children. This has been a difficult time for our young people, staff, and the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We worked hard and were successful in facilitating smooth transitions for all of our residents into their new placements. Your gifts helped us do that. We are extremely grateful for your generosity.

Even though Saint Cabrini Home will not continue as it has been for the past 120 years, we are seeking opportunities to generate new ministries.We are working to discover the needs of the community and to develop programs that truly meet these needs. As new ministries emerge on our campus we hope that we can once again call upon you for continued support.

The Board of Directors of St. Cabrini Home, Inc. and the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus thank you for years of generousity to our Mission. Please pray for the Holy Spiritís guidance as we evolve into new endeavors.

Sincerely,

William R. Eidle,
Board Chair
