This is a very recent picture of our Wednesday English class taught by Marie Russoniello Mead. There are women in this class who have different countries -- and even different continents -- of origin. Seemingly, they gather each week to learn English. In the process of learning English, however, they build relationships -- and relationships are empowering. And, according to the mission statement of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women, " . . . when women are empowered, the family is strengthened." We believe that strengthening families is one of the greatest things we can do to serve God's people in Passaic.
While this picture has the potential to paint thousands of words, we share it with you today to convey just two words -- THANK YOU!
On this Thanksgiving Day, we THANK YOU for helping us to provide a peaceful, safe, welcoming place for our women to express their needs.
We THANK YOU for assisting our women to form supportive relationships.
We THANK YOU for providing the means -- through your donations and other support -- for over 11,000 visits by the women of Passaic during the first five years of the Center's existence.
Without our many supporters, this ministry would be impossible.
We are grateful to those of you who have responded so generously to our fundraising letter. (If you have not received the letter please contact us.)

Thank you and God bless you!
