Today is #Giving Tuesday. I hope that Monica’s story and her experience with Families as Allies inspires you to give generously so that families across the state can support each other and work together on behalf of our children.
Providing support to one parent like Monica through Families as Allies for one year costs about $1,000 and means more children stay in school and more parents remain employed.
The most important way each of us can give today and every day is by welcoming ALL families, including those whose children have mental health challenges, without judgment or blame. Mental health problems are common and real, yet families often don’t seek help for their children because of the stigma associated with mental illness. We also urge each of you to work with us to make sure the right kinds of services and supports are in place to help children with mental health challenges. Follow us on Facebook to stay current on these opportunities.
