Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

> Clothing the Naked<br/>> Feeding the Hungry<br/>> Housing the Homeless<br/>> Cheering the Fallen<br/>> Encouraging Economic Development<br/>> Providing Jobs for the Unemployed<br/>> Administering to the needs of those in Prisons, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Schools, ...<br/>> Advocating for Animal Protection and Rights<br/>> Protecting the Environment<br/>> Promoting Arts & Recreation<br/>> Developing, supporting, and providing superior services to enhance the quality of life, protect rights, and promote self-sufficiency of our diverse individuals, families, and communities

We have conducted our own programs of education, outreach, and advocacy; published reports from the field of community-based social service projects; and also funded the work of other nonprofit organizations and public institutions selected by our Board of Directors.

We depend on the generosity of Donors to enable us to provide valuable services to communities inside and outside of the USA. We strive on helping animals, providing family services and outreach programs to the general public, and targeting our services to low-income groups world-wide.

Certainly, we have changed through the years and we have grown in terms of breadth and depth. We serve all economic backgrounds by eliminating the financial barrier to seeking assistance and this is done through a sliding scale fee that is relative to a family's combined income. We are committed to helping People and Animals in need of aid.

We want to acquire a permanent site to operate family services and outreach programs. Currently, we are utilizing in-kind office space in several locations. The venue will include all services offered by PISI. We need your help meeting this challenge. It is our mission to change the lives of the abused, battered, homeless, hungry, ill and less fortunate. In order to meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded Donors, we wouldn't be able to serve those in our community and worldwide each year. This year our goal is $5,625,593, and we hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Your generosity will make a difference by allowing us to continue in our work.
