The Annual Meeting was well attended with about 140 people coming to the lunch and presentations.  The event was held in the Gateway Building at the riverfront in Peoria.

The presentations included a token of appreciation given to Rick Gentry the outgoing board president for his service.  He encouraged us all to engage in volunteer service.  The volunteer efforts of all the board members is greatly appreciated by our staff and our clients!

The other presentations were done through videos.  One
video was was from a peoria school district principal who had high praise for Ron Tyler and the outreach program.  A second video was about how successful one of the foster care clients has been in working through the issues that brought her case into foster care.  A third video showed how helpful the MSSP (Multiple Services for Single Parents) program has been for a young woman and her children.

We are grateful for everyone who attended the annual meeting and also for those who support our mission.
