You are here
During this season of Thanksgiving, we would like to thank our donors, volunteers and partners for all they do to improve the lives of individuals living in our communities. It has been our good fortune and pleasure to work with you all over the past year and we look forward to partnering with each of you in the future.
We wish you a happy Thanksgiving and a joyous holiday season.
Collective Impact and Middle School Success
At this time of year we get a flurry (pun intended) of requests for volunteer opportunities for the holidays.
Some people are looking to connect with others in what can be a lonely time of the year. Others are wanting to create a shared experience and a culture of service for their children.
A story from Homeward Bound's newsletter:
Wesley’s mother Tammy got pregnant at 16 and was totally unprepared to be a parent. His father was an alcoholic and not present for most of Wesley’s life. Tammy loved her son and took on the role of both mom and dad as best she could, but it was really hard.
Over the past 15 years or so I've been a sporadic, yet regular client of OnTrack Financial Education.
