Awareness Raising


“Awareness is the greatest agent for change.”- Eckhart Tolle

We work to raise awareness of a number of important issues, local, regional, national, and international. Raising awareness, educating people, and giving them accurate information is crucial to encouraging people to participate in bringing about change on matters of importance and that impact upon all of us.

We also act as a representative voice on a number of local, regional and national committees highlighting issues effecting individuals, families and the communities we work with.
