“Imagine what this world would be like if all along the way you had people say to you, it’s good that you are different. Show me your differences so that maybe I can learn from them,” Leo Buscaglia.
Just in case we miss the opportunity to say “THANK YOU” RHA sets aside a special night to share thanks, give praise and celebrate our communities’ accomplishments. From the start of the evening the power of community was evident! We cannot say thank you enough to the many community partners who provide opportunities for RHA residents to gain confidence, improve quality of life, learn, earn find self-sufficiency and simply… succeed. Please know, we count you among these partners. THANK YOU
Along with THANKS to our community, I must give thanks to the RHA and HUD team. Please take a moment to review our annual report that highlights the successes achieved when our team’s work and the community’s work come together. Highlights are here in our Annual Report. We also captured the event here, in our Gallery of Photos. As the night concluded we gave rise to our latest focus – #IamRockford. I am Rockford is a platform that blends RHA’s efforts to make evidence based and data driven decisions with real life, personal stories. I look forward to these stories, along with continually improving results as we head in to our next year.
On a final note, the Leo Buscaglia quote above goes on to say, “But we still see the processes again and again of trying to make everyone like everybody else.” As a partner, I commit to you that we will do our absolute best to live our shared values so that this portion of the quote no longer lives on… please join us. Peace my friends. #IamRockford
