The following is a note from our Executive Director, John Thompson.
My name is John Thompson, I am the new director of the Roark Sullivan Lifeway Center (RSLWC) in Charleston, WV. Our employees, volunteers and I strive daily to help rebuild and restore lives of men and Veterans experiencing homelessness.
During this season of goodwill, we are asking you to consider making a monetary donation to our organization. Your contribution allows us to continue our mission by temporarily housing, counseling and feeding the people we serve. IN addition, we assist each individual with establishing personal goals, finding employment, and obtaining safe and stable permanent housing.
We have Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) Tax Credits available. In order to receive these tax credits a minimum donation of $500 is required and you will receive a tax credit of 50% of your total donation. (Example, if you donate $ 500, you will receive a tax credit for $ 250 applicable to your 2018 West Virginia state tax bill.) The tax credits are limited and will be claimed quickly.
