November Letter from the CEO
Dear Friends of KYC,
This month’s newsletter is literally bursting at the seams with content, which is a perfect symbolism for the feverish work being done by all our teams this fall to serve clients. We’re busy providing behavioral health and older adult programs, ensuring the safety and well-being of people in our community.
As you scroll through this newsletter, you’ll see KYC’s first ever billboard created by our Positive Youth Development Team and their education campaign being implemented in junior high and high schools across the area. You’ll find photos from our Volunteer Dinner in October and more from our Fashion Show this month, recognizing the incredible people who give of their time, talent, and treasure to support KYC. You’ll find out how you can support our #GivingTuesday campaign as part of the Thanksgiving holiday week and find out about our Adopt a Family program that offers our neediest clients gifts for the holidays this December. I couldn’t be prouder to share with you all that’s happening and invite you to be a part of the work we’re doing.
But the most important message I hope to share this November is one of immense gratitude. In a world where hustle and bustle keeps us moving at record-breaking pace and the news shares more bad news than good, each day at KYC is filled with kindness, compassion, and a sincere commitment to the betterment of our community. Our offices across our locations are filled with joy, teamwork, and relentless energy. KYC thrives because of our dedicated staff, invested volunteers, and generous supporters who make our work possible.
May this season of thanks fill your home with the warmth and happiness you bring to KYC throughout the year. We are deeply grateful for your friendship and support.
Susan E. Cowen
President & Chief Executive Officer
