As I look back over 10 yrs (plus 3 prior yrs of planning) my heart is filled with so many stories from so many individuals and families, nights and days of support groups led by community volunteers who supported so many with both skills and caring. So good to have so many return Sunday to reconnect, let us all know of their ongoing grief & healing journey, and celebrate HHP as still the safe place for so many.
Sunday gave purpose and meaning to budgets, branding, marketing, and donor requests.
All of the organizational efforts mean nothing without the "Why" of how Hope & Healing Place began, transformed itself over years, and never left the original mission to "heal the heart of a child."
The desire is for Hope & Healing Place to b serving families 10, 15, & 20 years from now.
All that began Sunday as we both looked backward and then leaned forward toward today's and tomorow's Hope & Healing Place. Wow.....loved every minute with Beth, Tricia, and now Tiffany, Emily, Candi, Becky, Les, Douglas, and so many more.
