Community of Conscience Breakfast
Thu, May 11, 2017, 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM EDT
SEE WHAT YOU MAKE POSSIBLE
Casa Myrna has worked to support survivors and end domestic violence since 1977. In 2017, we are celebrating our milestone 40th anniversary by looking back on our inspiring past and looking forward to an even brighter future. This spring, we will honor the founders, staff, survivors, and supporters like you who have made our 40 years of new beginnings possible.
The celebration won’t be complete without you. Join us.
GIVE BACK AND GET INSPIRED
This special anniversary Community of Conscience Breakfast illuminates our growth from a single safe place for women fleeing violence into an agency that now serves thousands of survivors and their children annually as they rebuild lives free from abuse. Begin your day by sharing a breakfast table with your friends and colleagues as you experience an uplifting celebration of new beginnings for survivors, families, and our communities.
