As a national non-profit, we are “owned” by our constituents and our doors are always open to feedback, concerns, ideas, and, of course, personal stories. It is our privilege to serve you, so please let us know how we are doing. I encourage you to review this month’s articles and follow our day-to-day activities and announcements thru our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). Thanks for your support and involvement and now, let’s make 2014 stellar!
