Dear friends of Wilder,
Your support of Wilder and the people we serve means more than ever. We have remained a strong, stabilizing force for families throughout the pandemic because of the dedication of our many partners, donors, volunteers, and staff. I can’t thank you enough for your faith in our mission and in this community.
The past year has been full of disruption and uncertainty, but it has also offered opportunities to learn and grow. For me, the pandemic has made it clear that Wilder can best support the Saint Paul community by leaning into our whole-family approach. We are finding ways to integrate our services and research more and more every day to make it easier for families to get what they need in one place.
We officially launched the Campaign for Families this year to jumpstart our whole-family approach, and our partners and donors are responding. I’m proud to say we have raised $13.5 million dollars toward our $17 million goal. These funds are already being put to use to help build a stronger Saint Paul, one family at a time.
The most important lesson from this year has been the power of resilience. Wherever I go within Wilder, I see people showing up for one another no matter how great the challenges. Our staff and volunteers continue to help children, adults and families navigate the strain of these times as they themselves experience it. The people we serve accept our support and use it as a launching pad to create a better life for themselves and their families. When we offer each other strength in times of great need, our entire community grows stronger. Thank you for making that possible through your support of Wilder.
