We continue to work diligently “behind the scenes” this summer to set ourselves up for a successful upcoming year.  We have kicked-off our legislative activities with a strategic planning session where we put details to the plans outlined in our Annual Report.  We are finalizing the legal and financial structures that will allow us to operate more efficiently and provide greater transparency.  Finally, with this article, we are announcing our fundraising campaign that will help to fuel all our upcoming activities.

Our Fundraising Campaign: Empowering Choices, Ensuring Dignity
