I am so excited to announce that while you are reading this newsletter our staff is moving into our brand new building! To say we have been blessed is an understatement. To be able to serve children and their families in a brand new space that is 100% funded by the community is truly amazing. We can not begin to thank all of you for your support throughout the years and helping us with this enormous project.
Please continue to follow our Facebook page for updates on ribbon cutting, open house, and tours for the new facility. With COVID restrictions and staff working to settle into the new space we are planning on hosting events after the first of the new year. We are very excited to share our new space with you in 2021.
