Happy New Year from all at Lund!

The end of one year and beginning of another is, in a very basic way, nothing more than the turning of the hands of the clock representing another episode of the perpetual cycle of the sun rising and setting.  But this particular episode is heavily weighted. It is a sunrise that heralds an important new start or a time to begin again with new resolve.

But before the new beginning there is the natural time of introspection and looking back at the accomplishments of the past year.   Lund’s Annual Report recounts these accomplishments in statistics and the stories of four of our families.  Only four stories because we cannot tell all the stories of the 4,839 individuals that we worked with last year.   But please know that every number represents a woman, child or family whose lives were positively impacted by the work of this organization.   You can read the Annual Report here.

Many of these 4,839 individuals are mothers in our programs who are resolved every day to be the best they can be for their children.  Mothers who are battling substance abuse disorders or mental health issues or coming to terms with their own traumatic pasts.  They are brave, determined and resilient.   It doesn’t matter that this is the last day of the year or the first day of a new year or any other day in between.  They struggle every day with challenges and obstacles that they need to meet with resolve and sometimes yet another new beginning.

As you celebrate New Year’s Eve please remember the women, children and families at Lund who take stock of their past and make new resolutions every day.  Their achievements in the past year are monumental.  Women change their lives with Lund’s help.

Hope.  Opportunity.  Family.

To all our friends, partners, and supporters – Happy New Year.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
