The other day, a woman stopped by our office. She asked to speak with one of our referral specialists, not to get help but to thank her.
"I called you all several months ago. I wasn't in a good place and I wasn't sure if I was going to make it another day. You were so kind and helpful to me and you got me connected to the help I needed. If there is ever a day that you don't feel like you are making a difference, I hope you remember me and remember that you are. I literally would not be standing here if you weren't doing what you do."

Which means our organization is wrapping up a 3-year strategic plan and will begin implementing our 2018-2020 plan next week.
