Build a strong community one life at a time

Everyone has a chance for the strong foundation our youth receive

There is no doubt that healthy families and individuals are the building blocks for a healthy community.

Youth who participate in our positive youth development groups receive a strong foundation, and they can always depend on the life skills and relationships they develop through the Teen Outreach Program (TOP)® and other programs.

Twenty-six percent of children will witness or experience a traumatic event before they turn four, according to the National Center for Mental Health Promotion and Youth Violence Prevention (2012). People who have experienced trauma are 15 times more likely to attempt suicide, four times more likely to become an alcoholic, four times more likely to inject drugs – the list goes on, unfortunately.

With our TOP® participants, the seed for a happy, healthy future is planted. They have their whole lives ahead, and will always have the strong foundation built through their relationship with Family Service. Your gift will give more of our neighbors the chance for that same strong foundation to cope with and overcome life's challenges.

Your gift will give our community a chance to be as healthy as possible.

All of us will at one point face a challenge too big to handle alone. That's why Family Service is here to help people identify and develop their own strengths. No matter their age or stage of mental wellness, people become happier, healthier and more resilient by participating in peer groups, therapy, or being involved with a caring case manager.

To create lasting bonds and a healthy community, give today and build a strong community, one life at a time. Give a Chance to All!
