Octo­ber Let­ter from the CEO

Dear Friends of KYC,

Although the weath­er may not feel like fall quite yet, I’m look­ing for­ward to the days when cool breezes and autumn col­ors trans­form the world around us. That trans­for­ma­tion reminds all of us of the con­stant change in our lives and the abil­i­ty we have to cre­ate change for oth­ers. It’s empow­er­ing and hum­bling. It’s excit­ing and also a bit scary. (But Octo­ber is also a time for all things spooky, right?) We all face change con­stant­ly and we depend on the sup­port of friends, fam­i­ly, and orga­ni­za­tions like KYC to nav­i­gate that change suc­cess­ful­ly. I’m so proud to know that the work being done by our clin­i­cians, social work­ers, and teams pro­vide a safe­ty net for all peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ty to man­age and thrive in the trans­for­ma­tions of our lives, both big and small.

There are many excit­ing events com­ing up in the next few weeks. Our Vol­un­teer Din­ner is an annu­al cel­e­bra­tion of the men and women who gen­er­ous­ly give of their time to ensure the con­tin­u­a­tion of our mis­sion and pro­grams. We hope you can join us on Octo­ber 17th at the Belvedere to hon­or their support.

In keep­ing with the trans­for­ma­tion theme of this mes­sage, the 29th Annu­al Fash­ion Show Imag­ine the Pos­si­bil­i­ties” will be host­ed on Novem­ber 4th at The Seville. This event offers a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty for over 400 guests to gath­er in sup­port of KYC and help us raise aware­ness and finan­cial con­tri­bu­tions for our orga­ni­za­tion. It’s a beau­ti­ful day filled with fash­ion and fun. Join us.

As we tran­si­tion and trans­form from sum­mer to fall, I hope each of you finds the oppor­tu­ni­ty to embrace and cre­ate change for some­one else. Whether sup­port­ing KYC by attend­ing one of our events, becom­ing a vol­un­teer, or sim­ply tak­ing a lit­tle extra time to sup­port a friend in need, our com­mu­ni­ty con­tin­ues to thrive because of kind friends like you.

Until Novem­ber,

Susan E. Cowen

Pres­i­dent and Chief Exec­u­tive Officer
