What Clients Are Saying..

"On behalf of myself and the entire Board, thank you for leading us in a productive assessment and learning discussion about ourselves as a board. I believe that the insights gained will help us to lead better and remain attentive to the responsibilities that we should attend to as a board. I for one was reminded about the importance of looking always to the future. I also was reminded of the importance of letting our very able staff conduct the operational work of the shelter without a lot of hands on interference from the board. These are fine lessons learned indeed!!"

- Alan, Board Member
