A Few Minutes to Show You Care

Lets do This

You don’t need a ton of time or anything elaborate to show someone you care. Even a small, thoughtful gesture says a lot. Communicating what you appreciate about another person can build them up, remind them that they are important and help to develop a stronger and more trusting relationship.

Take just a few minutes to sit down with a young person in your life and write a short list of what you appreciate about one another.  Not a big writer?  Try drawing pictures of what you appreciate about each other!  However you choose to show care and appreciation is meaningful – it doesn’t have to be big. 

Stay Inspired

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
