We Are Thankful

We are thankful for you, our generous, faithful supporters. We are thankful for our participants, graduates, volunteers, board members, staff and community members. In a recent meeting, many of our participants shared what they are thankful for. Terry said, "It has been 7 years since I've had a holiday experience with my family. It's very important because of everything I've been through. My grandmother and aunt have been with me every step of the way. I've never shown them anything but being incarcerated since the 70's. This is an important step." Raymond shared, "It's been 26 years since I've been able to sit down and eat Thanksgiving with my parents. This is going to be one of the best things that will happen to me in a long time." Read more about what they are thankful for here.
