#GiveGratitude Website Banner

As we enter our sixth year of operation as a non-profit organization, we know the work we do is more necessary than ever. Our community counts on us to show up when they need us, often when they are at their most lonely, vulnerable, and isolated. That’s why we are so grateful to everyone who gave their time, energy, and talent to help us reach our fundraising goals this year, so that we can give belonging to more people than ever in 2023.
