Every Family. Every Child. Every Time.
The Blog

Our voices are powerful.

If we use them effectively, we can make positive personal and social change. Our voices can create vibrant, equitable communities; ensure housing, health, and safety; support and celebrate the cultural differences in our community; and create a better world for future generations. We can change attitudes. We can change behaviors. And we can change policy.

Our blog is a place to get information and news updates, and to learn more about your community. It is a place to find individual support through new programs, services, and events. Voice is critical to creating change. So use your voice and listen to ours, and join the thousands of others who have crossed over the Bridge from hopeless to hopeful—change starts here!
