Here are some of the great successes we had during the month of September:
• Thirty names were pulled from the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) waiting list! As always, we are thrilled at the opportunity to help new families secure quality housing!
• Head Start welcomed our little students for their first day of school and the beginning of a great school year!
• The 18th Annual Hispanic Cultural Awareness Festival was held at the Broadway Fountain in Downtown Madison. The event is hosted each fall by La Casa Amiga and is open to the entire community. The festival featured delicious food, live music, and beautiful dancing. We were lucky to have nice weather that led to an excellent turnout!
