Sad News

It is with deep regret that I write to inform you of the passing of Dick Rastin, who died of a heart attack on December 24th.  Dick Rastin was the tireless Executive Director of Street Connection, and a constant presence at the London Homeless Coalition.  The Free Press did a nice article about Dick available at http://www.lfpress.com/2012/12/25/dick-rastin-worked-for-nothing-to-keep-street-connection-going.  Our thoughts go out to Leone, and the countless youth that Dick supported and mentored.  This will be a difficult time for them all, so we thank in advance all of you who are working hard to support these youth.
Dick will be greatly missed.
