A Message from Dianna Kunz
President and CEO
I would be remiss to not begin by expressing a heartfelt thank you for all you have done for Volunteers of America during the past year. More families have been helped during the past year than ever before in our 119 year history. Whether you made a financial gift, volunteered your time, adopted a family in need or simply continued with your regular volunteer efforts you have, indeed, stepped up and helped the most vulnerable in our community. In 2 Timothy 1:9 it states that God saved us and called us to be holy, not because of our works but because of his own plan and purpose. You opened your heart, you were moved and you answered that call and for that I am forever grateful.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move into the New Year. The demand for our services continues to rise as does our need for support from people like you. In 2015 we opened two new programs in the Denver metro area. Our Early Education Childhood Center, located in West Denver will serve low income children and families with quality early education preschool programs. We will be able to nurture and educate 170 of our youngest students and pave the way for their educational success at a very early age.
In the past year we also cut the ribbon on the Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center. This resource center not only houses all of the VOA programs working with veterans but also hosts numerous other Veterans focused agencies. The Resource Center is one place where a veteran can find assistance with housing, mental health issues, VA benefits, employment and more; all under one roof.
Whatever your gifts, whatever your talent and time, please stay involved with us. We are only as good as all of you and can only do what we do because of you. God Bless.
