I recently joined the board of Connections because of my interest in the work that they are doing and the positive impact that they have on our community. They work with a very vulnerable and underserved population, and they meet both the spiritual and physical needs of their clients. I have been impressed by the way that the very hardworking, caring, and dedicated staff members treat their clients with dignity and respect. Connections not only provides food, shelter, and support to its clients but helps them to become productive members of our community through the Connect to Work program in which clients who have barriers to employment are trained to get and keep a job. Connection provides employment both directly through the establishment of its own businesses and indirectly through contact with the community at large. I am proud to be associated with this organization. Bonnie Silbermann

Connections represents the best that non-profits have to offer. It is continually evlving and reshaping to meet the needs of the community and it constituants. COnnections Clients are the down trodden and defensless.
