Since I was a child, my parents taught me the importance of being humble, respectful, but most important to be grateful. Thank God for his blessings, and thank each one of you who have extended their hand, offering me love, support, care, and concern. Every day, I do my best to apply my parents' lessons of remaining humble, respectful and expressing my gratitude.
This year I can not find enough words to express my gratitude and say, Thank you. Thank you because 2020 has been challenging for all of us, including at Wide Horizons. However, I choose to emphasize the positives; we have been inspired and motivated to be more united and find creative ways to overcome the seemingly endless obstacles confronting us. I feel that today we are closer than ever and have not missed one single milestone. We have also met more people from across the country we could never have dreamed of meeting. And their help has been invaluable.
One of our teammates lovingly wrote this about Wide Horizons..
WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER;
WE ARE TAKING STAND.
WE ARE GIVING IT BACK;
WE ARE LENDING A HAND.
WE ARE SERVING OTHERS;
WE ARE ENLIGHTED.
WE ARE WIDE HORIZONS.
I believe every word of this, because it's true about ALL OF YOU!
Please know, we are so grateful for having you on our team. Your time and contributions to our cause are highly appreciated. So "Thank you very much." Happy Thanksgiving. May God fill your life with blessings for your great heart.
Carla Jewett has been with us since the beginning. Her wisdom, experience and passion helped us lay the ground work for where we are today. She was recently elected as the Board Secretary for the organization in a special election. She is taking on an even greater role, and we are excited about everything she does to move our mission forward. Read more about her here. "Thank you Carla!"
And our undying thanks to Brenda Acevedo who began this journey with us as our very first board secretary. Without you, Wide Horizons, Inc. would have never made it off the ground.
Partnering with a local member of the community, Wide Horizons, Inc. has opened its corporate communication & training center. In addition to operational meetings, this facility will be the meeting place for the soon-to-be released Wide Horizons Club. The club will be a format for our program participants to get together (virtually for now) to have fun, get to know one another, and explore their many gifts and talents that will support their journey towards sustainable employment.
