    extracurricular activities soccer swimming music art and dance I asked them which organizations among the many their children attended were the strongest Without hesitation their answer was Destiny Destiny changes lives I ve remembered that line Destiny changes lives as I ve watched the amazing Sarah Crowell lead workshops and speak on panels as the organization invested in the impressive Cristy Johnston Limon as its new executive director and as demand and programming continued to grow I am impressed with Destiny at many levels from its foresight to raise capital funds before identifying its future home so that it would be in a good position to negotiate a mortgage to its steadfast focus on advancing children s power and safety through the arts At the time that the Walter and Elise Haas Fund s board considered Destiny Arts capital request the organization was close to its fundraising goal but it wasn t quite there This Fund hopes that its vote of confidence in Destiny Arts and this capital campaign will inspire donors to come forward with funds needed to complete the project It can be a great investment in Oakland s young people it can change their lives Previous Next
