Changing Lives Gala (2016)

Celebrating Mary and Gary Becker

Mary and her late husband Gary have been instrumental in promoting our work in the community. Gary helped build awareness of the impact of our work in the community and improved our external communications. Mary has contributed to our program as a member of the Catholic Church of the Beatitudes. The Beautitudes have hosted holiday parties and helped in other ways to support our female clients in our Safe Parking Program. Mary continues to be actively involved with our work!
