WAKING THE VILLAGE
WAKING THE VI… SAYS:
With huge gratitude we send …
With huge gratitude we send this letter of thanks to you. We have witnessed such great momentum since we sent our plea to Save Tubman House. We are heartened by the power of community and are reassured that this cry for help has reached families of heart and generosity across the nation. We are realizing we are not alone in our work- and that if Tubman survives this blow, we will come away better due to the community that has gathered around it.

We are especially grateful that you have contributed to the Sierra Health match campaign so that your donation can be doubled.

In October, we gathered our residents to share the bad news that we had lost our federal funding with no warning . As we gathered, we witnessed a readiness to fight beyond our wildest dreams. It left no choice but to rally and charge forward, not in bitterness, but in love and with spirit. We are now closer to our goal of building a network of supporters so that Tubman is here to stay. This has not only lifted the staff, who wrap their heads around social issues and work daily to guide youth and their children, it has lifted the families we serve. Your act has messaged our youth that people ARE filled with love and that the power of community can overcome the blows of budget cuts made by the powerful and faraway.

Your donation promises stability in this hard time to each of our residents. Doug is one such resident. He and his fiancé arrived at Tubman 17 months ago stalled out after the birth of their children in quick succession. Since joining, Doug completed his GED, earned a scholarship for an intensive medical billing program, completed the program and earned grades high enough to get placed in a 260 hour externship. He just completed that externship and is searching relentlessly for place to begin his career. He also proved a devoted dad and committed to improving his relationship through weekly couples counseling. Doug and his family are a month away from moving into an affordable apartment that will provide the platform they need to continue forward into careers. If Tubman closes, the family will be sent back into the instability they have struggled to escape.

You have been a part of ensuring our families survive this moment. Thank you for your support, and for believing in our work and in the families of Tubman.

Warmly,
Blithe Raines and Bridget Alexander
