Mission in Action

Our deepest appreciation to all those who attended and  sponsored our Bountiful Brunch & Boutique on Sunday, May 1st at the Princess Anne Country Club.  Special thanks to Raphael Brandt, a father whose family participated in our Strengthening Families Program who spoke about the life-changing program and its positive effects on his family.  Thanks also to Lucy Bustamante, WVEC-13 Daybreak News Anchor, who spoke on motherhood, career and being a military spouse. 

It was a beautiful event, with all proceeds supporting families in need in our community!  Special thanks to our event sponsors – your generosity will allow us to serve so many in need:
