Good afternoon! We have a lot of very important news to share with you from SOAR! First, we are excited to welcome to the SOAR Team Laura Zatorski! Laura is our new SOAR R&R Director and will be doing this as a part time volunteer. We are thankful that God has brought her to us! She has performed the same position at a church in Lincoln, Nebraska before moving to the area this past summer. We admire her tremendous heart for families with special needs and for SOAR and she is already making a great impact on our ministry! Welcome Laura to the team!
