    • Our super trio and their sidekicks (a.k.a. Shelia, Lizedny and Christine with new interns Kamrie and Allie) were busy all week with survivors – going to appointments, helping with housing and services, building relationships, etc.
    • Linda Goldberg from the Murfreesboro volunteer group stopped by the office on Thursday with bags of food kits for our survivors.
    • Thursday’s staff meeting was full of surprises as the team found out that we were able to move our two part-time workers to full time for the rest of the fiscal year, an exploiter will be providing us with a new vehicle as a good faith gesture, and we have  funds to purchases some tools to help us serve our volunteers and survivors more effectively. .
    • A kind donor brought a box spring and bed frame to the office on Friday to give to one of our survivors.

    As the spring and summer months continue on we will be having a lot of activity around the office and lots of presentations and events so stay tuned to our website, newsletters, and social media for updates.
