Impact in the Community

SVF funded keynote speaker Ivy Watts and provided every attendee with a copy of her book focused on finding mental wellness and self love.
  • (Pictured above): Board members Lisa Daley and Tanya Benoit presented on our organization's behalf, and even had the opportunity to meet famed Patriots players and mental health advocacy supporters.
