Dear Newsletter Reader,

Through the many changes and challenges of 2015, ACLAMO employees and volunteers have worked diligently and at personal sacrifice to keep high quality programming available to the thousands of individuals who look to ACLAMO for training, counseling, advocacy and companionship.

This effort comes at a financial cost and ACLAMO workers look to newsletter readers for vital support. If you have not given this year, please make a generous donation now. It will make all of our holidays a little more joyful and meaningful.

Have a delightful holiday and a fulfilling and successful 2016!

Nelly Jimenez, CEO and Executive Director
