We eagerly start this New Year reflecting back on how SWAN has been blessed in the past year. It’s hard to believe that just over a year ago we received our official 501c3 status. The year has had it’s challenges but we are grateful for every step along the way. We have worked diligently to get the word out about SWAN’s mission and have met many wonderful supporters. The most exciting part of our year, without a doubt, has been the establishment of the pilot programs running at The Mix at Arbor Place and The Family Center of Gap. Working with the children and seeing them learn to play an instrument, to sing and to perform for others has been priceless. With the ground work that has been laid in 2012, we are hopeful that 2013 will enable us to establish the funds needed to begin several other pilot programs while continuing to build the current ones. We look forward to 2013 being filled with reports of our students and the positive impact that music is having in their lives.
We invite you to join us this year as we work to break the cycle of crime in these young, vulnerable lives. Here’s how you can join to help SWAN make a difference in 2013!
