On May 24th, Robb Elementary School suffered a horrific tragedy after a gunman had entered the school after shooting his grandmother. In what is now being investigated as a grossly mishandled situation, 19 individuals had lost their lives before law enforcement intervened.
As 2021 comes to a close, we have been reflecting on a year that was filled with the immense challenges brought by COVID-19 as well as our victories in building capacity by working collectively with local service providers. Again, we wish to express our deepest gratitude for the support from our former and current fiscal sponsors, funders, county and community leaders, and most importantly, our committed SFC team and our incredible SFC partners.
