Please join Families as Allies for our virtual combined Community Partnership Celebration and New Year Open House on Monday, January 24 at 5:30 p.m. The event is free, with paid sponsorships available. There will be opportunities to share your ideas for Families as Allies at the event. Please also take a few minutes to complete this survey and tell us how we did in 2021 and what you think Families as Allies should focus on in 2022. The work of Families as Allies is about all of us, and we are eager to hear your feedback.
During the celebration, we will honor and recognize the outstanding people and organizations that exemplify our four core values: Caring For Every Child and Family, Excellence, Partnership and Accountability. We will share this year’s honorees in next week’s newsletter.
It is also an evening to raise money to support the work of Families as Allies, because every dollar raised furthers our mission: To make sure families are partners in their children’s care. By “make sure that families are partners in their children’s care,” we mean that Mississippi’s system of care for children will be family-driven. “Family-driven” means that “families have the primary role in decisions regarding their children as well as the policies and procedures governing the well-being of all children in their community, state, tribe, territory and nation.”
These are some ways that your donations to Families as Allies make a difference:
