CANI Connections
November 2013

JAG students attend leadership conference
On October 25, 60 JAG (Jobs for America's Graduates) students from 12 regional high schools attended the annual Leadership Development Conference at The Summit. The students attended breakout sessions where they learned about different leadership styles and public speaking skills. A keynote address by Ethan Birch (aka Six8) was also part of the event. JAG's mission is to keep young people in school through graduation and provide learning experiences that will lead to success following high school graduation. More information about JAG can be found on our website.

Veterans Day reminder of those who serve

This past Veterans Day was an opportunity to show appreciation for the sacrifices made by our nation's military men and women. It is important that we all take the time to honor the work done by our Veterans. Unfortunately, some of these heroes face difficult challenges upon returning home. In an effort to help Veterans lead the healthy and productive lives they deserve, CANI offers the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program. In essence, SSVF is designed to help Veterans from slipping into homelessness or housing instability. More about this important program can be found on the CANI website.

Board members honored

CANI is proud that two of our board members were presented with prestigious awards in the past few weeks. On On October 24th, Todd Fleetwood, former board president, received the 2013 Carl D. Rolfsen Stewardship Award. This award was presented by the Foellinger Foundation. In addition, current board president Dawn Gallaway was honored with the National Philanthropy Day Award for Outstanding Nonprofit Leader. This was presented on November 14th by the Northeast Indiana Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. CANI is fortunate to have dedicated board members who stand out from the crowd for their leadership in the community. Read more about Todd's award in Steve Hoffman's latest blog post.
Season of Giving
CANI appreciates donations all year long. But during this time of the year, more people open their hearts and give. If you are moved during this season of giving to support those who are less fortunate, please consider making a financial contribution to CANI. Your support allows us to do even more for families in northeast Indiana.

Donations can be made online through our secure website.
