7 Reasons We're Grateful for You!

November 23, 2022

Hello from St. Ann's Center for Children, Youth and Families! 

This Thanksgiving week, we wanted to express just a few of the many ways we are grateful for you and the difference you make for the families living at St. Ann’s.

1. You help St. Ann’s Center to welcome vulnerable families beginning their healing journeys. Thanks to you, five new families have been able to join St. Ann’s supportive and transitional housing programs so far in FY 2023.

2. Your help makes an immediate impact in families’ lives. The moment a mother and her children begin their journey with St. Ann’s, they have immediate access to safe housing and on-site child care, relieving two major stressors.

3. You help us to create a holistic and caring environment. Through you, families at St. Ann’s are supported in an environment that is safe, nurturing, healing, empowering, and strength based – where all are served with compassion, dignity and respect.*

4. You help St. Ann’s families to have fun! Thanks to you, St. Ann’s families can bond and create wonderful new memories with on-site holiday parties, movie nights, pizza socials, and more!

5. You help mothers advance toward long-term goals. Mothers at St. Ann’s are supported in their educational and employment goals through robust case management assistance. 

6. You help mothers to heal from past traumas and explore their future potential. Thanks to you, mothers at St. Ann’s can access individual and group counseling through our strengths-based and trauma-informed Clinical and Social Work Services.

7. You help TWO generations break the cycle of poverty. Through you, mother and child are able to interrupt the multi-generational effects of poverty and begin writing new futures!

Thank you for supporting St. Ann’s families through your time, talent, and treasure! Generous people like you give us hope not only for vulnerable families in our region, but all those in need throughout our country and the world.
Wishing you peace and plenty this Thanksgiving!
