20 Feb Happy New Year
Dear Friends of WTLC,
Happy new year! Our year started off with a bang as we have reached (and surpassed!) our End-of-the-Year fundraising goal of $50,000. Thank you to all our supporters who have generously donated during the holiday season. With this momentum, we are moving full-speed ahead to do some awesome things in 2019 and I can’t wait to share our updates with you throughout the year. But for now, here’s a quick sneak peek:
• Expanding our capacity to better serve survivors of human trafficking through our newly awarded $700,000 federal grant
• Increasing the number of bedrooms and housing units to accommodate our survivors who need longer-term housing
• Leading a task force with our collaborative partners to better respond to the needs of those victimized by elder abuse
• Building a state-of-the-art “Sensory Room” that promotes self-healing and relaxation for children who have been victimized by sexual assault and other trauma
These are some of the many great things we hope to do this year and your support directly helps us to do some amazing and innovative work for our survivors. So with this, here’s to a great 2019!
