March Update


March Update!


"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." - Jonathan Swift

Hi there,

Spring has sprung and there's new life all around!


Updates
Our interior designers completed their  design plan for the house and will soon be connecting with room sponsors to begin the envisioning, decision-making and set up process.

We've made significant advances in building our referral networks, thanks to some great work from a volunteer intern, a group of medical professionals, and some growing connections with the Department of Public Health.

We had a very positive meeting with our local police chief. He has assigned a detective to be our police liaison, will advise us on our security plan, and is excited to partner with us.

A great first month of blogs.  Kudos to the fantastic team of writers!  Check them out by going to: amirahboston.blogspot.com  You have the option of signing up to receive them via email.
