This year has been difficult for us all as a worldwide crisis turned our daily lives, and everything we knew as “normal”, upside down. Just as each of you, your families, and your workplaces experienced a shift and a level of trauma (and grief from the loss of so many daily experiences we held dear to us), so did The Dragonfly House. However, it is important to know that our agency provides essential services and during the past 9 months we have been here every day with our doors open, our staff ready, and our facility safe to serve the children and their family members who need us most.
Throughout the pandemic The Dragonfly House seamlessly continued our work with child abuse victims, never skipping a beat, to provide all of our core programs to every child who needed us. This included being available 24/7 for law enforcement and social services when urgent cases came to our attention (which has been much more frequent than during the months and years prior to the pandemic). But, just as dedicated as we are to being here every day, behind the scenes we are looking at our own crisis of nearly a year’s worth of loss in community financial donations, including not being able to hold our largest annual fundraiser event at the end of March.
Please join us as we finish 2020 fighting together for these kids, for children who have experienced physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and who have witnessed violence, so they will always be able to find hope and healing at The Dragonfly House.  #thereisaplace2020
