This Time Next Year (TTNY)
This Time Next Year (TTNY) is an outreach program created to provide an opportunity for deserving women to celebrate their birthday, that may not be able to do so because of circumstances. The women are surprised with gifts, cake, and encouragement.
In addition to receiving a birthday surprise, each woman will receive a mentoring and goal-setting session by a licensed mental health professional who will assess their mental, physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual needs. After this assessment, each woman will set 3-5 goals they would like to achieve by this time next year on their birthday. TTNY will provide monthly follow-up with support, case management, and referral sources for each woman to assist her in meeting these goals.

The play provides insight into measures that can be used in order to help those that may have experienced similar trauma or life events. The play is performed in partnership with Don’t Wanna Miss Productions.
