Dear Safe Schools Coalition Members and Friends:
I am writing to tell you of an exciting transition.
For six years Lifelong AIDS Alliance has been serving as fiscal agent to the Safe Schools Coalition, pro bono. On behalf of all the other member organizations, I want to thank them SO MUCH for these years of handling our bookkeeping/accounting functions!
I am thrilled to announce that we are about to be taken under the wing of another member organization, the newly merged (as of January 1st) Rosehedge/Multifaith Works. Both the merging organizations, Rosehedge and Multifaith Works, are longtime health and human service providers on the AIDS Care Continuum in King County, WA. As our new fiscal agent, Rosehedge/Multifaith Works has agreed to take over all the functions Lifelong AIDS has been handling for Safe Schools Coalition beginning January 19, 2011. The Coalition's Leadership Team is VERY grateful to Rosehedge/Multifaith Works for taking the next turn at this role.
What's it mean to you? Starting 1/19/2011 ...
Safe Schools c/o Rosehedge
       1401 East Jefferson Street, Suite 401;
       Seattle, WA 98122
Thank you, Lifelong. Thank you, Rosehedge. The community so appreciates you both.
