Director's Report: October 2017

Greetings friends,

As we approach year’s end, I’ve found myself taking a moment each day to reground myself in the Center’s mission, and the important work we have before us as a community. As a sense of divisiveness permeates the media, our conversations, and our consciousness, the need for constructive, collaborative, and innovative approaches to conflict become even more imperative. Action is critical. 

How are we taking action? Our Board is working diligently to update our strategic plan in order to ensure a vibrant future for the WDRC, and our staff and volunteers are working tirelessly to meet all of the requests for service. We are continuing our search for a new office space that will allow us to grow, bolster our accessibility, and continue to provide a warm and welcoming space for all. We are connecting with partners to explore creative ways to meet community needs. We are reaching out to our elected officials to raise awareness of our services.  We are reflecting on the beauty and strength within our community, and we are listening to the diversity of voices and people we are here to serve.  

Thank you for joining with us to take action toward a healthier, stronger, more resilient community by building peace – one person, one conversation at a time.

WDRC Executive Director
