Banquet Honors Volunteers and Donors
On March 4, 2016 FGFRC held a volunteer/donor banquet to show appreciation to our many volunteers, supporters and primary donors. Everyone had a chance to share how they became involved with the resource center after enjoying a homemade pasta and dessert bar. See more and pictures
Auction Huge Success
Our auction Saturday was a huge success thanks to so many. Allen Todd with A. L. Todd Auctions helped raise $18,817.15 thanks to the folks who attended the auction and the gracious donors who provided the 167 items that were auctioned last weekend. Many thanks to the East Davidson volunteers who helped the auction flow smoothly. Thank you for supporting families needing an extra hand. We hope you will plan on coming to our auction next year.
HR4724 NEEDS TO BE OPPOSED!!
As a professional who has worked in the social services with a local nonprofit, I am appalled at the thought of eliminating the social services block grant.
Children need a voice and they need protection. Parents need education to learn how to discipline without violence. I have taught over 800 caregivers' valuable techniques to encourage and strengthen their relationships and families. Financially the cost of a family being referred to DSS for services far exceeds the minor cost in intervention, not to mention the emotional, psychological, and health consequences for a child being abused. How many children have to die before they have a voice?
The social services field should NOT even be considered for a reduction in funding. When will our elected officials take heed and protect our children? The time is NOW!
This is my first time coming. I was referred by a friend, but my walkin visit on 2/10/16 was simply amazing. Staff was very polite. I was treated with respect, integrity and knowledge about what program offers. I am blessed to have people with a kind gentle heart to help me out in a situation where i'm not judged.
A great place to come for help when your down on your luck.
Amazon shoppers!! You can now support us by shopping at Amazon Smile. This is a part of Amazon.com that will donate a percentage of your Amazon shopping dollars to Fairgrove Family Resource Center. You can't beat the prices and now you can help us too. All you have to do is shop as usual on AmazonSmile and we will benefit. Thanks!!
I am very grateful for the service and programs provided by Fairgrove Family Resource Center. They have provided my family with invaluable information that benefits us in so many ways. I think many families I know would benefit from taking parenting classes.
