친애하는 친구,

FY 2021을 Career Opportunity Development, Inc.(CODI)의 또 다른 놀라운 해로 만들어 주셔서 감사합니다. 한 해 동안 헌신적인 직원들은 가장 어려운 시기에 서비스를 유지하는 놀라운 일을 해냈습니다. 우리의 지속적인 목표는 오버헤드를 낮게 유지하면서 용량을 늘리는 것이며, 여러분은 이를 가능하게 하는 데 진정으로 도움이 됩니다!
CODI는 우리의 사명을 지원하기 위해 시간, 자원, 음식, 공급품, 돈, 재능 및 땀을 기부하는 놀랍고 관대한 사람들로 구성된 지속적으로 확장되는 커뮤니티 덕분에 그 어느 때보다 강력합니다. 우리는 우리가 정말 운이 좋다는 것을 알고 있으며 감사가 우리의 감사의 작은 표시인 것 같습니다.

이 편지를 쓰면서 나는 내가 가장 좋아하는 명언 중 하나가 생각납니다.
루스 스멜처(Ruth Smeltzer)는 “돈을 벌었다 하더라도 결코 갚을 수 없는 사람을 위해 무언가를 하지 않으면 완벽한 하루를 보낸 것이 아니다.”라고 말했다.

그동안 보내주신 성원에 보답할 수는 없겠지만, 진심 어린 감사와 감사의 마음을 전해주시기 바랍니다. 우리가 봉사하는 사람들에 대한 당신의 지속적인 헌신은 우리가 당신의 지원을 받는 것이 얼마나 행운인지 상기시켜줍니다. 여러분의 관대함과 동정심은 이 어려운 시기에 우리에게 동기를 부여하고 영감을 주었고, 그것에 대해 가장 감사합니다.

Habits that support our mental health. We may want to consider incorporating the steps below into our self-care routine. 

Always Be Humble and Kind - Smile at someone, be friendly to someone we don't know. Be generous with our time, energy, gifts, talents, and resources. Be patient, easygoing, warm-hearted, and thoughtful. Kind hearts are quietly kind. They let a car cut before them without losing their temper, let the three-year-old mom move in front of them in the checkout line, or take time to listen to others instead of complaining. We can show mercy and grace to those we feel may have slighted or wronged us and, in doing so, understand that mercy is the most profound gesture of kindness. 

Bring Nature Inside – while nature provides many benefits to our mental health, so does bringing plant life inside. According to the World Economic Forum, taking care of a plant can give us a sense of fulfillment while improving air quality and reducing airborne pollutants in our internal environments. Improved air quality can also boost cognitive performance. 

Clean Our Space - regardless of where our space is located, we can make it as clean and organized as possible. Spring cleaning is an age-old expression of getting a fresh start after the long winter months, but it also boosts our mental health. According to Very Well Health, just the spring cleaning ritual can give us a sense of accomplishment and control over our environment. 

Focus on our Sleep - the benefits of a good night's Sleep can supercharge our brains and bodies. One of the ways we can look within is to see how we're treating ourselves. Optum Health notes that limiting alcohol and caffeine before bed, lighting our meals, reducing exposure to screens, and keeping our space dark and cool are ways to have a better sleeping experience. Let's all commit to taking extra care of our mental health!

Quantifying CODI's tremendous positive impact on countless individuals isn't easy. However, it is undoubtedly significant. It is gratifying to see CODI achieve its mission of serving its consumers with an unapparelled quality of care. CODI accomplishes its mission through even the most challenging circumstances, whether providing housing, assisting with employment, or enriching its clients' personal and economic situations.
