Dear Hosts, Home Visitors & Supporters, Season’s Greetings Christmas is coming and with it the challenge of holiday hosting with families gathering or leaving the country. A very jolly, warm, time, but not if you have nowhere to stay. When Ruth discovered that 63 placements were due to end in December, we were daunted, but it [...]
