Fiscal Year 2011-2012 Annual Report



Fiscal Year 2011-2012 Annual Report
Changing Lives
for the Better
Message From the Executive Director
I’m hungry. These words have a very different meaning in my home than in the homes of the clients we serve at West
Valley Community Services. As a partner of Second Harvest Food Bank, WVCS helps to put food on the table of those
who are in need. Together with other Emergency Assistance agencies like Sunnyvale Community Services, St. Joseph
Family Center and Mountain View CSA we ensure that the entire county is able to access food, resources to shelter and
other basic needs to prevent hunger and homelessness.
My three active and growing teens constantly say “I’m hungry” even after generous servings at dinner. Amazed at how
much they can eat, it gives me a sense of satisfaction that as a parent I am more than able to fill this very basic need.
How painful it would be to hear “I’m hungry”, if I were unable to provide them food. One in ten parents in our valley
will hear those words and will not be able to provide the food that their children need. We see those families everyday
at WVCS.
Through the generous donations of food, funds and volunteer time, we can work to ensure that the words “I’m hungry”
becomes a “want” instead of a “need”. We thank you for your support these past 39 years. As we reach our milestone
next year of 40 years of service, we continue to ask you for your support and partnership so that no one’s table is empty.
In partnership,
Naomi Nakano-Matsumoto, LCSW
Message From the Board President
As we approach the end of another year we find much to be hopeful and grateful for. Working with great focus on shoring
up our fiscal condition, Staff has enjoyed one of its’ most successful fund raising years, and it’s not over yet. These
activities have been highlighted by, but certainly not limited to, the Second Annual Chefs of Compassion.
New individual donors are making an impact, cost saving measures are being enacted to good effect and the scope of our
services remains very robust. There is still much to do.
Yet I have every confidence in our ability to thrive in this difficult time. WVCS enjoys the many benefits of a motivated,
compassionate and resourceful Staff as well as an outstanding Executive Director. Each Board member is engaged personally
and financially in support of WVCS, and the very large cadre of enthusiastic volunteers, without whom the extension of
our services would be impossible, continues to be one our most valuable assets. Pulling together as a community for the
benefit of the less fortunate is the essence of WVCS. Thank you all for your part in this vital organization.
In community spirit,
Steve Spitts

Stories of success
With Marissa unemployed and Jeff working at a supermarket, this family was living paycheck to paycheck,
barely making ends meet. Marissa came to WVCS seeking food assistance in hopes of reducing their food
expenses. The couple had just filed for bankruptcy and was at risk of losing their home due to the lack
of income. With the help of WVCS’ food pantry and case management, the couple has been able to lower
their food expense and Marissa was able to find a permanent job with great pay and benefits. Today,
Marissa and Jeff are not only able to make ends meet but they have been able to save more than $1,000
monthly. Their housing is no longer at risk because they can pay their mortgage and they have successfully
graduated from WVCS’ programs, are stable and self-sufficient. Marissa shared that “if it wasn’t for
WVCS’ help, I would not be where I am right now.”
