NEWS & FINANCIALS

We are so excited to share that one of our very own Family Liaison mentors, Suzanne Lail, was awarded the Governor's Volunteer Service Award! Suzanne has been a committed mentor to one of the mothers in our Family Success Program for the past two years and has supported her in finding safe housing, going back to work following COVID-related setbacks, and focusing on improving her mental health. This award is well deserved and we are so excited for Suzanne!#mentor #mentoringmatters #volunteer #governorsvolunteerserviceaward #EconomicMobility #movingforward ... See MoreSee Less
