Be Inspired!

 

We are so grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve seen from the caring individuals, foundations, and corporations that have stepped up to help us Keep Our Red Doors Open. All are helping to ensure that our staff and our clients remain safe and well through the COVID-19 crisis.

We hope that this list of acknowledgements (which will be updated regularly) serves as inspiration to others to take action. During this time of isolation, it helps our staff and clients to know that they are not alone — that their community cares about them.

Our needs are great and ongoing. Keep on giving! Make a donation to our Keep Our Red Doors Open Campaign and visit our Wish List of our most urgent needs today.
