Dear WEF Supporters,

There were many new faces on this year's Wegene guest landscape. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all that made our 15th Year Anniversary Dinner Gala fund-raising event a resounding success. In order to have a dream and an idea come alive, it is imperative to have the support of a community. The community we reached out to responded kindly and showed amazing support and commitment to our cause. Our thanks goes out to everyone that helped in all aspects of the event. We are honored to have such great supporters and volunteers that we can count on. Our visions and dreams are big, but it can only be sustained with the help of those that believe in us. We know that only together we can …see the invisible, feel the intangible, and achieve the impossible! Read More ....

Eyerusalem's Update
Growing up homeless with a dysfunctional family is difficult, but Eyerusalem has beat all the odds. She has overcome multiple obstacles, worked hard, and didn’t let her overwhelming problems get to her. She has always held her head high and has never let anyone put her or her brother down. WEF is so grateful that we had the chance to work this this phenomenal woman. Please watch this short video to share this miracle story with us!
