We know that this past year has been filled with transitions, uncertainty and a few hiccups. We are extremely grateful for your patience, understanding and willingness to work with us to better serve the children, youth and families of the District of Columbia.
We would like to thank Mayor Bowser, Deputy Mayor Brenda Donald, and Rachel Joseph for working with us and for their unwavering commitment to ensure that there was no disruption in programming for children, youth and families in the city during this time of transition and wind-down.
And finally, we would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the entire board and staff of the DC Trust for their utmost professionalism and commitment to this work during this difficult time.
It has been our honor and privilege to serve families in the D.C. community over the last 17 years, and we look forward to the exciting work ahead.
