THE NEST is a private, quiet, safe location on campus that is staffed alternatively by two highly trained and professional chaplains, Holly Migas and Alex Esquerra. Currently, The Nest is available Monday through Thursday from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM and often later as needed. Students may visit The Nest at any time, either individually or as a small group, to develop tools to help them navigate challenging life situations. Last year, over 25% of the student body visited The Nest at least once, while many visited much more often.
THE NEST emerged during COVID and was initially 100% funded by both parents and resources from the State set aside for such purposes. With these funding avenues drying up, we are working to fully fund The Nest as an organization and I am happy to say we are about 50% of the way there.
We have received a $10,000 matching donation from one of our generous families. Will you consider giving to this very vibrant and effective program? Please make your gift now. Every dollar you donate is doubled due to the matching fund.
