Families, providers, partners, and beloved members of the community… now more than ever, you are in our hearts.
In these challenging times we may find it nearly impossible to feel hopeful or inspired.
We may doubt whether or not we belong, we may even wonder if there is still good in this world.
It is in these moments that we must remind each other; it is in these moments that we must be the good that we wish to see… and it is in these moments that we can find inspiration in our ability to be resilient, in our ability to lift others despite our feeling down and out, and in our ability to insist on joy and unity.
At our last monthly Consumer Advocacy Meeting (C.A.T. meeting) our family consumer advocates took time to send light, love and hope out to the larger community.
The messages in these photographs are of letters / messages of hope to :
- Future Generations
- Our Undocumented brothers and sisters in the community
- The world / global community
- Anyone who is wondering if there is hope for us
This isn’t the first time we will be faced with struggle and it’s so important to understand that good things have come of past struggles… people have continued to smile, love one another and ultimately move humanity forward. Let us be the world we want to see, let us lift each other, let us inspire each other.
If you can say or do something kind for someone else … it may be just what they need & it’s certainly what the world needs.
Light and love from the Homes for Families, Consumer Advocacy Team
