DivsersityDHS Holiday Wishes

Yet another year is almost into the history books. Congratulate yourself for making it through
some of the most challenging times any of us have known in our entire lives. It has been both
a privilege and a joy to have experience the company, participation and compassion that each
and every one of our members and dedicated supporters have offered through the more-than
five years our organization has now been an active and engaged community resource.
