Greetings,

As we reflect on the past year, we appreciate the many gifts of time, talent and treasure that we received throughout 2018. We truly live in a community that is abundant with good will. Your generosity made a marked difference to over 1,000 moms, dads and children.

Every day we were witness to young parents on their journey to more promising futures—a direct result of your gifts. We saw young families secure safer homes, make great gains in their educational achievements, and most importantly, we saw their children growing and thriving. There are no greater gifts.

Throughout the year, we also grew stronger with a board, staff and volunteer team that delivered the best of themselves every day. They truly know the importance of their work and had an unwavering commitment to Terra’s mission. It is not always easy work considering the complex systems and life events our families often face, but our team was there 100%, extending support with open hands, hearts and minds.

In 2019 we will build on our strengths, expanding early learning and childcare, housing and mental health supports. Last year laid the foundation for advancing these critical services and we are excited about realizing them with a strong circle of support from our partners. We accomplished so much with you by our side over the past year and we look forward to your continued support in 2019. May all things that bring you joy be yours in the New Year.

Sincerely,

Karen Mottershead, Executive Director, and Anne Smith, Board Chair
