I work in a company that volunteers time, money, and material goods for this organization. Family & Children First is a great place to help heal from those wounds that touch the mind- those through abuse, neglect or other forms of violence. This place provides a resource when all is dark, and provides a light to follow into health and stability through such rough times.

I'm proud to spend my time and efforts helping these people. If something was to happen so traumatically to me, this is the first place I would go.

I have never been to the location. However, it makes me feel really good donating clothes, books, toys and money to these people who just need something to bring them out of their pain, out of their darkness. When I was really low, a friend reached out and gave me a shoulder to lean on, and handed me a small gift. If a toy or a book can pay forward the same thing to someone else, I will continue to do so. They are the shoulder to lean on, the place to go, the light in the darkness.

I have volunteered for this organization many times in the past 10 years. Their staff is kind and caring. They do amazing things for hurting families in our community. Their facility is bright and colorful and it allows the children assisted by this organization to receive therapy in a very welcoming atmosphere.

I can't say enough good things about their staff. They are very dedicated and work very hard to improve the situation of the children and families by working through the sadness so many of their families are dealing with. They have made a huge difference in many lives. God Bless them for all they do!

through volunteering I have met the staff and some of the families supported by F&C. I've heard testimonies of some of the children (now adults) who have bravely shared how F&C made it possible to rebuild their lives and stop the cycle of abuse.

Provide them more funding to help even more families.

The company I work for has long running ties with this charity, and I have had the priveledge in helping this fantastic organization as a volunteer. The charity is a light in an unfortunately dark world for many children who have experienced difficult times in their lives. Family and children first has many success stories with how they have helped out children who have experienced abuse, neglect and violence. It is great to know that such organizations exist to help less fortunate individuals to have a meaningful life.

F&CP is the most amazing charity! My office has partnered with them for several years (among other charities) at the holidays, and the response for them is always great. The work that they do in the community is invaluable. Through our work with them, I feel like we have created a greater awareness of the need to serve others among our employees-- not just with them, but in general.

I attended their annual breakfast, and have assisted in some of their fundraisers. The stories are absolutely haunting. I have seen people in my company donate well beyond their means to this charity, with the explanation that it has helped them in the past. I don't ask questions, but you can tell it really made a difference in their lives.

award them $5000! This is SUCH a worthy cause. :)

Through volunteerism I have witnessed the exceptional loyality and hard laborous work that is involved in going the extra mile to provide for others. Children are silent and do not have a political voice and budget cuts take away many "fun things." I have seen people in this agency work to create an income to replish some of these "fun things" to the children, through their hard work. A smile and a gleeming eye from a child is a sign of hope and love. May the smiles and love continue as you provide special moments for special children year after year.

By seeing foster children create special moments in their lives through the generous support and chartiable work this agency provides. Christmas parties, summer camps, and picnics build traditions and vertue.

Provide a legaslative voice for foster children.
