Because that's where I tend a dream.
As I was delighted to tell you in this previous post, I've been honored to launch a new non-profit in our community called Legacy of Hope Austin. Our mission is to serve families with children with special needs through providing 'date night' respite care, dance classes for the kids and specialized tutoring.
And things, they are a-hoppin'!
The tutoring program, 2learn2dream, launched first this past spring. We've already been thrilled to have helped several children with individualized tutoring. We had our first respite care 'date night', 2night2dream, this past week and were delighted that some moms and dads who haven't been able to have a night out because of their children's specialized needs were able to bring their kiddos to our facility and have them cared for by our RN and her amazing staff.
And next week we launch 2dance2dream, a dance program specifically geared for children with special medical and developmental challenges.
It's a dream in progress.
And please, oh please oh please, if you are in the Austin metro area and have a child you would like to enroll in our programs or have friends or family who could use these services, please contact us! We have openings available in each of the programs~~and remember, because of our generous benefactors, these programs are offered free of charge.
As I've been working through my piles of notes and print outs, 7 of 8 came in the office and told me she wanted to help me. I told her I would appreciate it and asked her what she would like to do.
She said she would 'ogre-nize' me.
Ogrenize away, little one. It's all for a great cause.
