        Here is the last paragraph from Father Strobel's letter (Room in the Inn).

We could not do this without you. Your gift strengthens our daily efforts to live out our guiding principle and seven core values.

Through the power of spirituality and the practice of love, Room in the Inn's Campus for Human Development provides hospitality with a respect that offers hope in a community of non-violence.

God loves us through you,
