After the big win last night, I feel the work JOSHUA is doing for our community is so important more important now than ever. I am challenging each one of you to join me at the 13th Annual JOSHUA Banquet. This year’s theme is “Challenging ourselves to make a difference. Are you up to the challenge?”
