Letter from the Director
I am amazed and so thankful for everyone who came out to support our students and their families for the I Have A Dream event on Saturday evening. What a great turn out! The sense of community for me was at an all time high. As Raymond encouraged everyone to take a dream maker envelope (they were labeled $1.00 up to $100.00) one of the hi-lights for me was that some of our parents or children's relatives supported this effort personally and gave cash donations to support their own children's summer program. There was a palpable sense of ownership and community that was unmistakable.
Thank you all for believing in our students, encouraging them and praying for them. What a powerful moment it was to see mentors, board members and staff praying with families and students at the end of the evening! I believe that our parents left knowing that people believe in their children, feeling they are loved, supported and prayed for, and seeing a side of their own children that they had not seen before!
May their dreams be realized!
