Family Outreach Richardson-Plano Inc
April 24, 2013

Family Outreach continues to be a organization dedicated to helping families - be it parenting classes, in home mentoring and casework, a help-line for community info and referrals - the goal to prevent child abuse and neglect has never wavered! And I am proud to be on the Auxiliary Board of this great organization that works tirelessly to meet that goal.

As an Auxiliary Board Member, I am very proud of the work done by Family Outreach Richardson-Plano. With a very limited paid staff and a host of committed volunteers, the mission of the prevention of child abuse is taken very seriously - the results and successes are truly blessings to those families serviced by F.O. To hear the stories of families in crisis and to realize that the cycle of abuse can be stopped is amazing, as is the dedication of those who do the one-on-one mentoring, teach the parenting classes, man the help line, etc.

I am honored to sit on the Auxiliary Board for Family Outreach Richardson-Plano. Our major responsibility on the Board is to raise funds so the staff and volunteers at FO can continue the excellent work they do to prevent child abuse and neglect. I have seen and heard volunteers and clients speak of their experiences with FO at our Auxiliary meetings and it is always most rewarding to hear. Whether it is a volunteer speaking of mentoring a family, or the staff case-worker reporting on a case she is handling, or the client telling us how FO has changed her family for the good, we on the Auxiliary Board have no doubt what a necessary and vital organization we are serving!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing and seeing clients and volunteers tell their stories of how lives of families are changed for the better and how the cycle of child abuse and/or neglect is stopped.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I believe the organization does a great job with the resources it has - be it the one-on-one home mentoring and casework, parenting classes, the Help Line, etc. However, funding is always an issue, as FO relies on donations and grants. So, if I could make a change, it would be to find a major corporate sponsor who would support not only our annual Bowl-a-thon held in the fall, but also various projects throughout the year!
