Ask the Founder & Executive Director

What have you found the biggest reward? 

The biggest reward in our short time so far has been seeing how quickly, and organically, the idea and passion that I started the organization with is taking off.  To hear one of the service providers in the field say, "I'm so glad you’re doing this now we don't have to worry about it", is the reason we began, to fill the capacity gap and allow them to focus on what they are good at, and we become the next step.  We were established to be not but one bridge to freedom, but many bridges that lead "from surviving to thriving".  My face has also come aglow when I have sat down to speak with a potential board member or volunteer staff member and I hear them say "we", I created this not for me, but for everyone, I am merely the one who laid the first brick in the bridge.
