Thank you, Henry E. Niles Foundation!

11.29.22 Technology Development Grant

During the past 2 years, like other organizations, businesses, and individuals, we at Crossroads have faced hard times. Our expenses have increased significantly, and while there is help available from our state and federal governments, it seems there is never enough to reach a sense of surety for the future, nor fitting our needs with the specificity of offerings.

The steadfastness of foundations who have been with us annually is life-saving, now more than ever. The Henry E. Niles Foundation is one such foundation that has repeatedly supported our endeavors here, especially in the area of technology. This is an area of continual growth and change and our needs are great.

Many, many thanks to the board of this foundation for a grant in the amount of $2,500 towards equipment and machines for teaching. We are deeply grateful.
