When I examine through Trinity Center’s lenses the year that just ended, I am looking to find out whether we remained true to our mission “to serve the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Austin.” I am looking to find out if we changed or increased services to the neighbors we serve in ways that respond to their actual needs. I am looking also to find out if we did so with deep care and compassion. Are we still serving neighbors rather than clients? And are we playing a role in the larger community’s attempt to end homelessness?
