2021 New Year Message from Executive DirectorJanuary 01, 2021
Dear Friends & Supporters,
Reflecting on 2020 with all its uncertainty and challenges, I’m filled with gratitude for each of you. Whether you gave your time, your dollars, your words of advice or your letters of support, you are a fundamental part of our work and our hope for the future. I’m grateful to those of you who trusted us to make the right (and sometimes difficult) decisions during the past year. We’ve made it through one of the most trying years of our lifetimes and we did it together.
2021 brings a new year with new possibilities. The COVID-19 vaccine is in our not-so-distant future so we can begin to think about in-person programs and face-to-face contact. As we plan for the coming months, we will continue to take extra precautions as we navigate our way to a “new” normal.
As we go through the rest of the winter, I encourage you to continue checking in with family and friends, especially those who live alone or those who are caregivers. Call us anytime we can assist with someone who needs support: 847.784.6000.
Here’s to a new year filled with hope and all sorts of possibilities!
Tish Rudnicki, MSW
