Why Our Annual Appeal?

Why Our Annual Appeal?

Stability, flexibility and ability are the key words!  Our annual appeal is one way you support the programs we provide to the children.  We receive state, federal, and United Way funds that specify what we use the money for and how long the services can be for the child and his or her family.  Your help allows us do what we do best – help the children. We view you as our partners in building a strong community

The money you raise from our Annual Appeal, our auxiliary events and private family foundation grants, is unrestricted.  These funds provides us the flexibility and ability to extend counseling to a family for a few more sessions than a state grant provides to ensure that the family is stable, to continue childcare in situations where the parents lose their jobs and don’t qualify for assistance, and to let us go that extra mile to stabilize and enhance a child’s life to the best of our ability in a variety of life situations that aren’t always covered in state and federal grants.

Thank you for making a difference in children’s lives and very often in your hometown.  If you would like to donate, please go to our website www.childandfamilyagency.org  and click on the donate page. Please remember to make use of any company matching funds that may be available!  This is a simple way to increase your donation at no cost to you.
