A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
“The greatest joy of my life has been a hawkeye view of this communal vision. For decades we have talked about lighting up the world with humble, peaceful candles.
I am grateful to know that violence and trauma can’t snuff that flame. We still have far to go. Our future is to continue to welcome the stranger, build new partnerships, and strengthen our networks to be a place of hospitality and healing.”
WORDS OF HOPE FROM OUR CEO
“Hope at Thistle Farms calls us to stand up when others sit down, take chances when the world whispers ‘play it safe’, universally believe that we all deserve something better, and then work like hell to get there.
Hope doesn’t make problems go away but rather leads us to get past one challenge, celebrate a win, and move onto the next one. While on any given day those problems seem so much bigger than any of us, they are never bigger than all of us.”
WITH GRATITUDE TO
We are honored that Brad and Kimberly Paisley served as honorary chairs for the event.
300 Candles Illuminated The Room
Each one burning in honor of a woman served by Thistle Farms over the last 25 years. Like a beacon, they light the way for more women to cross the threshold to Thistle Farms in the coming years.
With our community’s support, we stand ready to greet our new heroes.
