Home for All Continuum of Care
As the Continuum continues to drive toward equity across our work, I'd like to take the opportunity to reflect on Juneteenth and its significance for all of us. Our nation wasn't free until everyone was free. And we continue to work to ensure that no outcome is predetermined because of the color of one's skin. Many thanks to the agencies who have made strides in honoring this day and equity in how we deliver our services. I hope that each of us has the opportunity celebrate Freedom Day and all that it means for our nation.Best,
