Senator Ernst visited the Wayne County Outreach Center on Friday, September 13th. Staff were given the opportunity to share information about their programs. Tammy Trenary, LiHeap Coordinator, gave Senator Ernst an envelope with thank you notes from program recipients.

SCICAP invited Senator Ernst to join one of our home visitation programs for a home visit during her next stop in one of our counties.

SCICAP was excited to have Sheriff Davis and David Dotts attend the meeting. They are fully aware of the needs in our rural counties and added much insight to the conversation.

"Be the Reason someone smiles today"

On my office wall there are big letters saying, "Be the reason someone Smiles Today". While working at my desk in early December, a fellow came in and said, "I'm here to give you something instead of getting something from you". He handed me a lovely card with the following hand written note: To SCICAP, Thank you for a new furnace! As a veteran now disabled, this is the first help I've had from anybody. You people do good work! Thank you from an Army veteran." I must tell you my eyes watered up a bit.
