What a crazy year it has been! The year 2020 will forever be remembered as the year the world stopped and life ceased to exist as we knew it. However, we are greatly encouraged by the endurance and tenacity of the human spirit to overcome. Here at Northern Arizona Dream Center, we have seen just that happen.
As with the rest of the World, the Coronavirus Pandemic created many obstacles for us this year. One of them being that we were unable to host our annual fundraising event. We are so appreciative of the sponsors that agreed to match last year’s contribution this year. This demonstration of generosity, and the addition of many more individual supporters, ensured that we were able to continue providing safe housing for young women during these unsettling times. This year alone we were able to provide housing to five young women, four of which are currently living on the property. In addition to growing in number of residents served, we were able to hire a Program Director, who has worked to build out a three-phase program. We have also moved properties, allowing us to grow our capacity to serve six residents.
As we wrap up this year, we would like to ask that you consider supporting us with your year-end giving.
We know that this year has been hard on many of us financially, so we want to assure you that no amount is too small and every cent given goes into continuing to provide housing and growth to young women aging out of foster care. Not only do our residents have a roof over their head, but also a community of support to encourage them through the process of becoming responsibly self-sufficient and independent.
We are honored to be a part of raising these young women up, and consider ourselves fortunate to work with generous supporters, such as yourself. We couldn’t have made it through this year, nor would we be able to continue on into 2021 without your generous support.
