Circle of Friends

In June 2019, Pat’s Place created the Circle of Friends giving society to recognize individuals, corporate champions, and foundations who contributed a minimum of $1,000 to the center over the course of one fiscal year. In the Society’s inaugural year, we are please to announce that we enrolled 140+ members into Circle of Friends! We are grateful for stakeholders who provide an annual gift which allows us to fund our core programs and meet the increasing need for our services. To learn more about how you can become a member of Circle of Friends and to discuss the benefits of the society, contact Lori Avery, Chief Development Officer at lori@patsplacecac.org.
