Hope involves the future
and so we talk a lot about tomorrow.

We believe in a tomorrow that feels different from today. We believe in a tomorrow that involves love and wonder, healing and sobriety and whatever else you need. We believe in a tomorrow where your dreams are within reach.

We hope beyond words that you will stay alive to see tomorrow. But we understand that you may need some answers now.

And so let’s talk about today.

Our friend Sierra DeMulder says it this way: “You, whose voice is someone's favorite voice, someone's favorite face to wake up to. Nothing would be the same if you did not exist.”

We believe that too.

Your friendship makes today better.

Your love makes today better.

You are loved, capable and deserving of love, even now.

Life is worth living even now.

You are already enough. Your story is already important. You are worth knowing in this moment, just as you are. You don’t have to perform. You don’t have to hustle or grind. You don’t have to hide and you do not have to fake it. And you are invited to be honest. Your honest words give someone else permission to offer theirs.

Your voice makes today better.

Your ideas make today better.

The way you love your favorite book and film and show and song, the way you love your favorite place, the way you share these things, it makes today better.

You the son or daughter, make today better.

You the mother or father, make today better.

You the sister or brother, make today better.

You the cousin. You the roommate. You the neighbor.

You are worth so much to so many. Your life adds so much to theirs.

You make today better.
