Amazing time had at BIAC fundraiser Music for Thought, celebrating survivors and meeting Mistress of Ceremony, NPR’s Faith Middleton. The best surprise was having our very own Ebony share her story of moving from surviving to thriving. The Project Genesis team was so happy to be a part of this celebration!
