Getting a head start on the holidays

Christmas will be here before we know it and we all tend to get so busy in December. So we're starting now to gather donated gifts and gift cards, with some special attention this year to kinship families and our kids in Independent Living. With our numbers growing, we will be trying to provide some holiday cheer to more kids than we ever have before.

Supporting fathers key to our work

We serve a lot of fathers in the programs throughout our agency. We assist them in feeding their children, help them acquire medical care for their children, assist them in paying child support, and help them find and train for jobs to support their families. It might be a surprise that we work with so many dads. Much of our work springs from welfare programs instituted over the past 80 years, and much of those were established because of children left behind by dead or absent fathers. But we have evolved tremendously in my 25 years here and fathers are a very important part of our work.
