You've been reading the reflections of a handful of our cherished friends. Like you, they each have special reasons for choosing to support Interval House.
As donors, volunteers and champions, your gifts are investments in our work and they enable us to plan our spending and create new programs. Your investment is even more important during a recession when it's vital for an organization to be flexible enough to respond to changing needs. Your gifts allow us to respond with innovative programs that go beyond emergency shelter and help break the cycle of violence for good.
In the last few years, we've been looking for new ways to help abused women and their children. With a few ideas in the pipeline, and Opening Doors, the program about which you read earlier, on its way to being a success, we're more grateful than ever to have friends like you by our side. In the coming year, we hope to help more women and children by continuing to improve our existing programs, exploring new services, making new friends and appreciating the old ones.
And though we keep a keen eye on the big picture, we know that it's often the small accomplishments that have the biggest impact. Thank you for making these moments possible and we hope that you will continue to celebrate with us.
Lesley Ackrill, Nadine Chan and Arlene McCalla
