Dear Friends of the Source,

As we gather with gratitude in our hearts this Thanksgiving, we want to share a special story that embodies the spirit of transformation and hope at The Source. Meet Amanda Raneri, a remarkable mother and our dedicated Employment Specialist.

Amanda’s journey has been one of courage and resilience. Four years ago, she faced the shadows of addiction, a battle that threatened to consume her life. But Amanda chose a different path—a path of recovery, faith, and healing. Her determination to overcome the chains of addiction has been nothing short of inspiring.

Today, Amanda stands as a symbol of hope, not only for herself but for the entire community at The Source and most importantly, her daughter. She has not only conquered her personal demons but has also dedicated her life to helping others do the same.

As our Employment Specialist, she’s the guiding light for individuals striving to reenter the workforce, providing them with the support, guidance, and tools they need to rebuild their lives. Amanda and her daughter have found a home and a sense of belonging in our Dignity Village.

It’s a testament to the strength of family and the support that The Source provides. This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for individuals like Amanda, who remind us of the transformative power of faith, determination, and community. We are thankful for your continued support, which enables us to nurture stories like Amanda’s and offer hope to those in need.

As you gather around your Thanksgiving table, we invite you to reflect on the blessings in your life, the gift of second chances, and the spirit of giving back. Together, we can continue to be the trusted symbol of hope for the poor and homeless in our community.

With heartfelt thanks

And warm wishes for

A blessed Thanksgiving,
