Fundraising Activities

In spite of our determination and motivation, we have not been able to embark on any fundraising activities which we know will have a profound impact on our ability to continue the scope of all our services.  In an effort to use all our resources, we have developed a campaign which we will be rolling out through social media.  Not much fluff … just an open, honest and direct appeal for help.  We are calling the campaign….STEP IT UP FOR YES.
