Regional Director’s Message

September 16, 2019

Fall has officially arrived it seems! And with the fall, some exciting updates. The new group of Seattle Leadership Institute Students have arrived. We have four incredible young adults participating this year. Jessica Jazmin from El Salvador, David from Mexico, Abigail from Nicaragua, and Alexis from Guatemala. I’m excited for our NW community to meet them and welcome them. They will be with us for the next 10 months, studying leadership, personal and professional development, as well as intensive English. You can follow along and stay connected with the Seattle Leadership Program by following the program’s page on Facebook.


Planning for our “Roots and Wings” 65thAnniversary Gala is well underway and we are so grateful to all of the individual and corporate sponsors, board members, volunteers and friends helping to ensure that it is a celebration worthy of the accomplishments achieved. We look forward to celebrating with you and working to ensure that the lives of these children we serve can continue to change the landscape of their communities and the world for the better through what your support empowers them to achieve.

We have a phenomenal and inspiring program planned, with guests who exemplify who we are as an organization and what is possible for so many through NPH. If you would like to sponsor the event or support the auction, please let us know and register you and your guests here.

On behalf of all of the children and families whose lives are better and futures are brighter because of you, thank you!

With gratitude,

Ross Egge
