It is with humble hearts and extreme gratitude that we recognize June 1, 2019, as S.H.A.P.E. Community Center’s 50th Anniversary, marking a half century of Family Strengthening and Empowerment programs!
As we move forward into the next 50 years, we are reaching out to our family and supporters to become part of the Founder's Day 50. SHAPE is a community center in its truest sense because the community builds SHAPE—and SHAPE builds the community.
We invite you to become a part of SHAPE's rich history because within our history, is also our future. The same children whose pictures adorn every inch of the Nia Becnel Family Center, have gone on to become business owners, doctors, farmers, attorneys, teachers, world travelers and so much more. And now, many of them have children or grandchildren in SHAPE. We want SHAPE to be here for our children’s children, for many generations to come.
It is only with your financial support that SHAPE’s future is secured. SHAPE has been consistent… reliable. It’s the place you can always come when you need to feel “at home”. You may have needed SHAPE for an event, a class, healthy food, a cultural connection; and you are always welcome. You may find that you don’t need SHAPE every day, but you will find that SHAPE is ALWAYS here when you do need us.
Your contribution of $500 or $50 will help to pay for children's programs, feeding the Elders, family enrichment, building maintence and security, and all of the invisible moving parts that help keep the center going. Help us to reach our Founder's Day goal of $25,000 and secure your place in the Founder's Day 50! Let us all pull together (Harambee) and invest in S.H.A.P.E. for our future.
