NATIONAL INTERN DAY

National Intern Day is celebrated on the last Thursday in July. It takes place on July 27th this year, and we want to recognize Diona Williams, a Diversity Recruitment intern through Wean Foundation & YSU who joined NOAS as a summer intern. Diona is graduating in August with a degree in social work. Although she will be working in Marketing & Recruitment this summer, she thinks she would like to work with youth. We are very lucky to have had the opportunity to get to know Diona and her passion for social work.

A HUGE THANK YOU

St. Vincent DePaul at Holy Family Parish collected $2,640.53 in cash and gift cards for former foster youth who aged out of care. We are so blessed to have supporters like you. Thank you for your generosity.
