December 2023 Happenings

Look what we Achieved in 2023!


We cannot successfully serve our kids without the help of our community partners and supporters. With the accomplishment of our End of the Year campaign, we raised a significant amount that will be used to run our programs and will help us build more needed services to support the kids we serve. Looking back at 2023, it was a great year, and we are sure enough that with your support we can build a more positive impact in 2024!
