No Need To Wait

We need your donations now.  This has truly been an unprecedented time with some real challenges for both the TEAM and the people we serve.  We have been able to continue our work during the pandemic, but our fundraising has taken a hard hit.  Most of our programs are grant-funded, but there are holes in our budget.  Please consider donating today.
