To our incredible AVANCE-Austin friends & family:
      We hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe and well. As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we want to express our gratitude for this community that has graciously supported AVANCE-Austin through good times and hardship with your time, advocacy, and financial backing.
      Meaning "advance" or “progress,” AVANCE serves as a trusted guide to assist under-resourced Latino families with children ages 0-3 in overcoming isolation and lack of opportunity. COVID-19’s disruption has highlighted the barriers that many of us may not experience personally, but all of our AVANCE-Austin families face. We thank you for being there with us while we transitioned all in-person programming to virtual programming to ensure our services remained available to each of our parents and children, and worked to provide our families with basic necessities such as diapers and food during this difficult time.
      While we would have loved to invite you to be our guest at this year’s Valor y Sueños annual luncheon, the safety of each of you is of utmost importance. Our original plans for our fall event have been reinvented, but our ongoing mission to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty remains. Today more than ever, AVANCE-Austin is a source of strength for the more than 600 families we serve, and with your help we will continue this role in the coming years.
      It is with a focus on the future and with an unwavering belief in the greater good that we present to you the 2020 AVANCE-Austin Fall Fundraising Campaign. We hope you save the date to join us at one or more of these events - all of which have been tailored to account for personal comfort levels and financial constraints in light of the pandemic.

      While we may not know what the coming days and months may hold, we do know that now is a time to celebrate AVANCE-Austin and our wonderful families who continue to prove to us during these tough times that good does in fact still exist.
      With sincere gratitude,
Event committee co-chairs, Kyler Ramsey and Jo Cassandra Cuevas
