This week at rotary...

Senior Development Officer at Citizens Inn
Our speaker this week was Drea Rhoades who works as a Senior Development Officer at Citizens Inn. She explained to the Salem Rotary all of the programs at this wonderful organization as well as the upcoming plans. Citizens Inn aims to break the patterns of instability that lead to homelessness and hunger for every individual served. Their programs equip clients with the tools necessary to unlock opportunities to live with financial independence by providing long-term, individualized solutions. Citizens Inn provides shelter and comprehensive support services to 35 families at a time in their shelters, Inn Between and Inn Transition, and provides nourishment to nearly 6,000 individuals annually through their pantry and community meals program, Haven from Hunger.
Citizens Inn has planned several improvements. Haven for Hunger has been undergoing renovations recently, the largest capital project in the history of Citizens Inn. It will increase their capacity, allowing them to serve a greater number of individuals experiencing food insecurity, broaden the scope of services they provide, and to address the challenges facing their clients.
The reconstruction of four housing units and the playground at their Inn Between shelter will dignify and enrich their clients’ experience, as well enhance safety and accessibility. They also have a newly established Resource Center at Haven from Hunger that will be staffed with homelessness prevention and system navigator roles, as well as supplies and technology, to meet clients where they are and help them overcome whatever obstacles they are facing.
Citizens Inn provides families in shelter with more than a roof over their heads. There are comprehensive offerings such as mental health counseling and their Children’s Enrichment program equip clients with the tools necessary for long-term stability.
Local partnerships have always been vital to the Citizen’s Inn’s delivery of holistic, compassionate services to individuals in crisis. This support is needed now more than ever. Support and advocacy are critical as they expand their services and physical spaces to mirror the demands of the community. Citizens Inn relies on philanthropy to fund 100% of Haven for Hunger and their special shelter programs. Drea is always available to give tours to interested parties.

Club updates

Next week we will be having a Membership Campaign at our weekly meeting. There will be w Fenway Park theme. 
Congratulations to Viktoria Talebian and yet another amazing fun and fellowship event. Kinky Boots was a smashing success!
Harrison and Graham Consalvo spoke to the Salem Rotary about some greenery that they are selling, and they found a few takers! According to our sources, this success likely came from the cologne they put on before coming to Rotary to show off. For those curious about the proper way to apply such cologne, the boys claimed that under the arms and on the belly are the best locations.

At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.
