Together We Are Essential 2.0

There is a light at the end of the tunnel...

giving us hope for a healthier and brighter future. As we continue to face uncertain times together, we are met with restrictions and the need to make difficult decisions. Our community's health and safety is a responsibility we take seriously and have decided to postpone all in-person events until 2022. Instead, we are announcing our TOGETHER WE ARE ESSENTIAL 2.0 CAMPAIGN!

Our goal of $185,000 will help change the lives of so many in our community. With your support, we protect children, help families build stronger foundations, and provide food, shelter, and education to youth who are most at risk of feeling the repercussions of neglect and abuse.

YOU have provided courage to many with your kindness, and we are incredibly grateful to have a devoted friend who believes in our mission. A community working together offers children and families the ability to triumph through difficult times. We look forward to YOU being a part of the most exciting Virtual Auction in town! Our expenses related to the global crisis have exceeded over $1 million and we are grateful for your enthusiasm and support again!

Together, we can achieve anything. TOGETHER, WE ARE ESSENTIAL 2.0!

Here are just some of the ways YOU HELPED!
