Oh What a Night!
The office was filled with people chatting away with youth, board, staff, long time volunteers and lots and lots of new faces!
The warmth of the conversations just filled the rooms at our 2017 Kickoff Party. We set up various stations throughout our office to share information about our upcoming programs and initiatives. We talked about the impacts of the programs, the success stories the youth have achieved because of the support of our RFL community, the trials the youth yet face, and how easy it is to be involved.
People commented continuously about the extraordinary community aspect of what we’re up to, and how engaged the
community is to help in any way they can. We have such a wonderful network of volunteers, mentors and supporters all
gathered to help youth exiting foster care to make a successful transition to adulthood, and the newcomers noticed
how special all of you are!
It takes a LOT of arms to wrap around these resilient young people to help them make a successful transition to adulthood. It is because of you, our amazing community that we see the extraordinary results in the numbers and success stories every single day. Thank you for all you do, and YAHOO! Here we go! We are ready for another great year together with you.
