COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP CELEBRATION AND FUNDRAISER

bravocrop.jpgFamilies as Allies has touched the lives of many children and families over the past year because of your generous support. Join us on Monday, October 24, 2016 from 5:30 to 8:00 at Bravo Italian Restaurant and Bar for our third annual Community Partnership Celebration to honor this good work and make sure it continues.

Please show your commitment to children by sponsoring the event at one of the following levels:

Platinum ($10,000 and above)
Your Platinum contribution will help underwrite a public awareness campaign explaining how everyone benefits when families are partners in every aspect of their children's care.

Gold ($5,000 - $9,999)
Your Gold contribution will underwrite 1 intensive workshop for 50 providers to learn how to help children birth to 5.

Silver ($1,000 - $4,999)
Your Silver contribution will allow us to host town hall meetings across the state where parents and caregivers can learn about how to support other families and their children in their communities.

Bronze ($250 - $999)
Your Bronze contribution will help at least one parent stay employed and keep their child in school for a year. 

Nothing is more important than children, ALL children,being able to live with their families in their homes and in their communities. One in five children will face a mental health challenge in the next year. 

We know that with the right kinds of services and support, children can and do get better. Families as Allies is unwavering in its commitment to making sure that happens.

Listen to this mom describe how that happened for her:

"I have told my family's story many times. I won't go into details here, but I do have some things I feel are important to be said. 

Families as Allies and the entire staff and parent partners working with them are a strong voice for children with special needs. They have created a haven for families of children with special needs.

The unprecedented dedication of the whole organization is humbling to me as a parent. Since connecting with Families as Allies almost two years ago I have never felt hopeless or helpless in any of the struggles my family has faced in seeking treatment or educational services for my daughter. Thank you all!"

Join us on Monday, October 24 to help make sure that every child has the opportunity to reach their potential and be successful.  Help us support families, community and positive change in our state.

 

We need you.  Stand united with us for our children. Register Now to buy tickets or to become a sponsor.

 

With Warm Gratitude,
