As one of the original members of Sky Light, I have seen it come through many changes and challenges. Through it all, the one thing about Sky Light that is most important to me is the sense of community, of belonging. To quote an old TV show theme song, ‘Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came’.

– Angela Cerio
