Holiday Message from our Executive Director
As we look back at the many difficult months we have all endured and forward to the hope of a new year, all of us at Osprey Village send our best wishes to you and those special to you for a safe, healthy and happy holiday season and a bright 2021.

Words fall short in our effort to express our gratitude to our first responders, doctors, nurses, and all of the generous people in our community and country who have made these trying times bearable through their kindness and dedication. Even before these extraordinary nationwide challenges, Osprey Village saw the devotion to duty exemplified every day by our staff and volunteers, the unwaivering faith of sponsors and investors, and the kindness of random strangers who have in many cases become friends. When times got tough, these rewarding experiences were more vibrant and more deeply appreciated than ever. Donations big and small from those of you who thought of our mission even as you faced challenges of your own
have brought us closer to the realization of our goal to empower adults with developmental disabilities to build lives of freedom, purpose and happiness.

May 2021 bring for all of us a new dawn blessed with community, good health, peace, renewal and optimism. And may we get there together as one.

With warmest wishes,
Jerome C. Manuel
Executive Director
Osprey Village, Inc.
