Your support for Britepaths helps families put food on their tables and keep roofs over their heads. You equip our neighbors with the resources and tools they need to find and keep employment. You help individuals find stable footing. And you show children the real meaning of community. Through your engagement, you proclaim to the most vulnerable among us that, "You are not alone. It will get better. We are in this together.”
Your investment enables neighbors like Narda to break cycles of hardship and create new lives for themselves and their families. Listen to Narda and her Network Up mentor Marianne. Narda also received supports from the Financial Empowerment Center at South County and our Financial Mentoring program on her journey to success.
As this tumultuous year draws to an end, we are reaching out in appreciation to remind you of the mighty impact you've already had, and to thank you in advance for supporting us through the long winter ahead. Eviction moratoriums are scheduled to expire within days and the harsh reality is that additional aid won't come in time from the federal government - and may not be enough - for those most in need.
And while the arrival of a COVID vaccine offers us hope, we expect widespread financial uncertainty to continue for some time.
If you haven't already, please give today to help local families survive this storm and stay on their paths to self-sufficiency. Our hope is that we will all welcome 2021 with more resiliency than ever before.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us at Britepaths!
Lisa Whetzel, Executive Director
