Ever since I was a little girl I have always favored the fall season. Truly my favorite part was the crisp crunch of the leaves as I walk down sidewalks or cut across yards loaded with all those beautifully colored leaves. I also love how the air holds a woodsy, piney, outdoorsy aroma filling my nose with memories to savor.
Enjoy the aromas of fall and the fun that comes with it.
A helping hand
Housing Access Services state-wide has assisted 566 eligible Minnesotans relocate to their own homes.
Yeah, this is awesome. Way to go team.
The need for this essential program is proven with the numbers. Just imagine how many beds have opened up in congregate care homes for persons truly requiring that special attention that is offered and the persons who once occupied those beds are now living their dreams and looking forward to the next plateau.
I know that I have said this many times before but here it comes again; I truly love my job and what I do. To be a small part of such achievement inspires me, sparking me to become stronger, bolder and louder in advocating for what matters the most, you.
