Help Us Embrace Children & Strengthen Families

There are many ways to support Family & Children Services’ mission. Whether you’re interested as an individual, family, or organization, we are thrilled you have decided to join us in being a source of hope for our community.


Ways to Help




The HANDLE WITH CARE Annual Fund is an essential safety net for those who turn to Family & Children Services for help in a crisis as a source of hope. It meets immediate needs and provides direct services when there is no other source in the community.

Learn more about and contribute to the HANDLE WITH CARE Annual Fund.

Circle of Hope Endowment


The long-term sustainability of Family & Children Services is ensured by the Circle of Hope Endowment. These funds enable us to withstand the impact of state funding fluctuations and to address emerging areas of community need with innovation, funding, and support for best practices.

Learn more about and contribute to the Circle of Hope Endowment.


Planned & Deferred Gifts


As part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan, a gift to Family & Children Services provides a way to complete a lifetime of giving or to make a significant gift that was not possible during your lifetime. Planned, deferred giving allows you to impact children and families well beyond your lifetime.

Holiday Giving Program


The Holiday Giving Program pairs donors who provide in-kind donations, such as gifts, household supplies, and/or personal care items, with Family & Children Services clients who are in great need. Alternatively, donors can donate to our in-house Holiday Store, which supplies necessities and gifts that our staff then give to families and children in need.

Learn more about the Holiday Giving Program.


Year-Round Pantry and Summer Enrichment Programs


Every year, Family & Children Services sends more than 300 children to area summer camps and enrichment programs. Assist us by donating funds toward fun experiences for children or by donating items that help pack a child’s backpack for their enrichment opportunities or to ensure that families have what they need at home for personal hygiene through our year-round pantry.
