Our futures are intertwined; a holiday message
Posted Dec 9, 2016
Vesper Society believes in a simple idea: a just society begins when everyone is well and everyone is respected as a human being. Putting those words into practice in Imperial County meant working with Clinicas de Salud to strengthen their asthma and telemedicine services to improve access to quality health care for all residents.

Vesper Society was honored to receive the Distinguished Philanthropist Award for this work at the fourth annual Imperial Valley National Philanthropy Day in El Centro. Our commitment to community grows stronger each day by linking arms with leaders in these overlooked communities that want to create a healthy future.
Our vision of a compassionate world that protects human dignity and enhances human potential calls us to build healthy communities that thrive and prosper. We support people and communities that care for each other and for the most vulnerable because it is in our common humanity that we discover what is most important in life.
During this holiday season, we are guided by gratitude and love, both essential for a world that draws out the best in people. This is the new narrative of light we want to create with you as we enter a time of uncertainty and shadows. The candle of progress is flickering, and we intend to build beacons of hope.
We wish you and your family warmth and joy. We wish you and your community bounty and health. Our futures are intertwined, whether we are in frontier towns, rural areas, or urban neighborhoods. We are grateful to have you in our lives and we send a simple holiday message.
