Spring has Sprung

Finalizations, Families and Funding....
Two Ampersand Families finalized adoptions in the past month, and we expect three more (5 kids) to do so by the time summer really gets rolling. We could not be more thrilled. A new, and wonderful, group of three families wraps up pre-adoption training next week. They'll start their home studies right away and we'll begin exploring to identify youth for whom each of the families might be a great resource. That's how it works...one youth and family at a time. Thank you, so very much to Mount Sinai Community Foundation, Otto Bremer Foundation and WCA Foundation for their recent gifts. In June and July we are doing an Improv project with Climb Theater, an activity made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriate from the arts and cultural heritage fund. And on we go......
