On behalf of the Sophia Way staff and all of our clients, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules each day to vote for The Sophia Way during Symetra’s Facebook Campaign. We would also like to acknowledge our competitors, the important work that they do, and their strong efforts to improve the community we share.

Although we didn’t win the top prize of $5,000 from the Symetra Facebook Campaign, we stayed in the race until the very end. This would not have been possible without the help of our dedicated friends, such as you. Because of your strong show of support for The Sophia Way, our friends at Symetra are granting us $4,000!! We are extremely grateful for this generous gift and the opportunity to raise awareness for our mission to end homelessness in our community.

Thank you for your generous donation of time and for reaching out on behalf of The Sophia Way. Your participation and support of The Sophia Way and the women we serve are sincerely appreciated.

With Appreciation,
Helen Leuzzi
Executive Director
