Because we can all extend a little more grace to one another.
Year-End Capital Campaign Update!
A crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising $80,000 for the Momentum Center for Social Engagement has passed the $14,000 mark! That's about 18% of our goal. Can you help us reach 30% by year's end? Please add a year-end gift to the Momentum Center to your gift-giving plans.
The funds will enable us to be open seven days a week, to offer social and recreational programs for teens one day a week, and purchase a wheelchair-accessible van/bus.
PLEASE DONATE whatever you can. Every dollar makes a difference! If everyone who voted for the Mental Health millage makes a donation, we will meet our goal!
