A message from Sarah Porter, Executive Director:
We, Victory Programs, have decided to postpone Gratitude Dinner scheduled for March 26th until further notice.
We’re actively monitoring the news and taking into consideration the guidelines and advice issued by public health officials. While we do not want to appear alarmist, we prioritize the health and wellbeing of staff, agency friends, and those accessing services. It is important for us to generate space for people to remain healthy and to ease any outstanding sense of concern.
Traditionally, we’ve marked the beginning of spring with Gratitude. This year, well celebrate the onset of summer.
Thanks for your understanding,
Victory Programs annual Gratitude Dinner dates back to 1975 when Victory House was a standalone program treating alcoholism. Then and now, Gratitude serves as a platform for clients, residents, and members to share “Stories of Gratitude,” personal accounts of overcoming substance use disorders, facing homelessness, and/or managing chronic illnesses like HIV/AIDS. What started as a small gathering around the dinner table of a single program has grown to represent the entire Victory Programs’ family, including current and past clients, staff, Board members, and select supporters.
Named to honor a former staff member, the Manny Jefferson Gratitude Awards are presented to individuals or organizations who have demonstrated excellence in volunteerism, a commitment to helping those in our care, and dedication to improving our programs and services. Check back soon for this year’s awardees.
This event is invitation only and not open to the public.
