Saturday, September 12 is the National Day of Encouragement. In honor of this, we reached out to our staff and asked them to share their favorite encouraging quotes. We believe there is no better time than the present to spread positivity and lift each other up.

Tomorrow also marks the end of National Suicide Prevention Week. If you or someone you love is in a crisis please call 800-273-8255 or text TALK to 741741 to be connected with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Times are challenging right now, don’t hesitate to ask for help.

And finally, if you are in need of encouraging words, then please read through our graphics below! We hope you enjoy them!
