Fly butterflies fly!

Thanks to a special donation of caterpillars from Scholar's Choice our Early Childhood Development Program, kids at the Inn got to help care for butterflies during their metamorphosis. Watch the video release here. It was a special moment for the children as they got to release the butterflies they loved and cared for into the wild.
Thank you to everyone who made the 6th Annual Claire's Campaign a huge success. We far surpassed our original goal of $800,000 to raise $1,072,708.25. It truly takes a whole community to make this sort of impact and every donation, even 25 cents, plays a part in ending child and family homelessness.
 
Last week was Marriott International's 3rd Annual Lobster BBQ. Thank you to all of our sponsors and everyone who helped us raise $22,210 for our Family Support Program. See the full photo album here.
