Fall Partnerships

Several of our ongoing partnerships with organizations in our community are no longer possible due to COVID. So during this season, we have sought to find other appropriate uses for our time and financial resources so that we can continue to live out our foundational value of justice despite the challenges we face. Read on to find out more about these temporary partners and how you can get involved!
