Read the words of those you've helped

Nov 15, 2018

This week, as we pause to give thanks, we are thankful for you - the people who support us and make our work possible.

Oftentimes when someone comes to us for help, they will write us after-the-fact to tell us how much the help meant to them.

Here are some snippets of those notes to help you see just how valuable your support is to us - and to them.
