Wonderful Event

Last night’s Celebration of Dreams event was a fantastic success! We celebrated the graduations of more than 50 of our foster youth. It was a fun, inspirational event that left everyone with a smile on their face.

Our young people really enjoyed their moment in the spotlight. For many of them, this is the only graduation party they will experience.

Dr. Mitchel Livingston delivered a moving speech about overcoming poverty to achieve great success. His message was that it does not matter where you start in life, but where you end.

Lincoln Ware served as master of ceremonies and kept the event moving and fun.

Dozens of volunteers from our agency, the Foster Child Enrichment Council and the Coalition of Care helped make the night a memorable one for our teens. I cannot thank them enough.
