“Being part of the TIAS ARMS community of donors and volunteers is very fulfilling. Every person counts toward the mission to “support the children” as we all bring different talents and skills. TIAS ARMS has made a difference in so many lives over the past 15 years and I am thrilled with the goals and our progress in 2016.
