“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go….” — Dr. Seuss, Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
As a mom to three girls, I love Dr. Suess. There is little in life more comforting than the rhythmic, melodic and sage stanzas of a Dr. Suess book. And, there is truth in his writing. You really do have brains in your head and feet in your shoes. We really can steer ourselves in any direction we choose! And, that’s exactly what we’re doing at RTA. We are steering this 27-year old nonprofit ship to be able to do more good works for more good people.
The steps we have taken to develop our new 5-year strategic plan, take a good hard look at the neighborhoods and communities where we are operating, reaffirm our commitment to our community partners and the homeowners we seek to serve, and place a greater emphasis on diversifying our fund development efforts to support our work have been important and propitious. We are already seeing positive outcomes as a result.
In this, our first newsletter of the upcoming busy fall rebuild season, I want to thank you for reading our newsletters. I hope by reading our monthly communications, you will be impressed by the work we do every day to make lives better and you’ll want to join us on this mission to repair homes, revitalize communities and rebuild lives!
There are so many ways to support RTA and the work that we do. Your individual donations sustain us as we help us to make and keep homes safe and healthy. Your volunteer work directly aids low-income homeowners with needed improvements to their homes. And, your corporate financial support allows us to not only revitalize homes but to educate homeowners on maintaining those important improvements. By working and Rebuilding Together, we can steer RTA and the Atlanta community any direction we choose. Well, we choose to transform the Atlanta community for the better. We choose to make a difference. We choose to live each day knowing we have made someone else’s life that much better.
Thank YOU for choosing to support us and this important work.
