March has been a very exciting month for Fair Chance. We shifted from a heart-felt graduation ceremony celebrating our current partners to welcoming our 2011 partners.
I know you will be excited as I am when you read about our partners and our work in this newsletter. The accomplishments of our partners continue to impress me and the breadth of their work through out the community is sure to spark your passion. As always our sincere thanks for enabling us to help give every child a Fair Chance to succeed.
