A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
Happy New Year! It is hard to believe that we have already entered a new year. Looking back on 2023, STOP COVAD had many great accomplishments. Because of the time and commitment of our board and supporters, we were able to assist over one hundred families and individuals in our communities. Whether they were helped through information, referrals, resources, gifts, financial assistance, or volunteer support, we did not turn anyone away who needed our services.
Other key accomplishments were our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament; 100 Men for Mental Health Workshop; and our Thanksgiving and Christmas Outreach. In addition, we were able to acquire office space; we received a BRIC Grant Award; we were finally able to contract a Grant Writer; and we added a new Advisor board member who has agreed to be our volunteer coordinator.
Finally, STOP COVAD was the recipient of two outstanding awards. One from Adam’s Purpose, a local nonprofit that is doing magnificent work with those who are dealing with the loss of a child. The second award was the Wendy Preston Family Award given through COVA (Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance). It was an honor for SC to receive both awards.
This year we will continue our mission to serve those impacted by crime, violence, and discrimination, as well as directing our efforts to address the challenges of mental health as it relates to specific groups in our communities.While we are still learning the ins and outs of the nonprofit arena, we are growing and being recognized for the outstanding work we do. Moving forward, we have important things on the horizon for 2024!
Thank you to each and every person who helped move STOP COVAD forward.
