A Special Thank You!
Dear CYT Kansas City,
Thank you for all of your love and encouragement through this past year. CYT Houston and HYPE were able to help even more families thanks to your help, but what we appreciate even more is the love and concern we received from the rest of the country, especially Kansas City. In hard times the biggest reassurance is often that you are not alone and that there are others to love and support you. Houston certainly took a hit this year, but with the aid of the rest of the nation, we have been able to get back on our feet and to continue caring for our community. We hope that 2018 will be a wonderful year for all of us and that God uses us all.
With love, CYT Houston HYPE
