It’s our Founder’s Day!
Thank you to all of you who've helped us grow over the years!
We should be celebrating the hard and dirty of the behind the scenes work but COVID and many other personal losses amongst our team pushed us to postpone our celebratory event. Today, we just want to uplift our gratitude and survival because let’s be honest, Virginia and it’s political landscape is unforgiving.
To our board and advisors, there aren’t enough words to express how much you mean 💙💙💙💙💙
To the many community partners, every single volunteer, our donors and supporters, even the naysayers, and most importantly, to all of those who’ve attributed to a continuing zero percent recidivism rate - THANK YOU 😊
Criminal and juvenile legal systems are broken and dysfunctional. We all deserve better. We all deserve love and to have the resources we need to never have to enter these unforgiving systems. We deserve community and access to basic human needs.
Here’s to the next 5 years of breaking down one barrier at a time by living in our truths, taking care of our community and educating others who have the benefit of never coming in contact with carceral systems meant to destroy us.
