Karis Community Annual Fund-raiser
Our good friend Lisa Jo Barr is a member of the Board of Directors for Karis Community - an organization that provides transitional housing and life skills training for men women dealing with mental illness. We’d like to help her spread the word about this amazing organization and their upcoming gala.
Did you know...Karis Community had the following impact (notes from their info letter):
“- We serve over 100 people per year, including those served in the alumni group
- The residents had a combined 37 hospitalizations in the year before they entered Karis Community. The first year they were at Karis, there were only two hospitalizations.
- Karis costs $78/day vs. psychiatric hospitalization in Colorado at $2,400/day
- Last year, 88% of the individuals in the program developed significant progress in developing independent living skills, and coping skills for their illness.”
