‘Tis the Season for Reflection and Looking Forward


Happy Holidays! The holiday spirit is in full-swing at Family Advocates as we get ready to bring joy to many of our families through the efforts of Operation Santa. This effort couldn’t be possible without the partnership of Goodwill and the generosity of more than 50+ of you who have adopted families. They say it takes a village, and Santa’s elves are busy at work shopping and delivering! A big thank you to all involved.

December also brings a time of reflection on all the accomplishments of the organization this year as well as goal setting as we look toward a new year. Family Advocates continued to serve CASA and Family Strengthening families through the pandemic, advocate for youth, teach online courses, provide resources, recruit volunteers, make huge strides in our marketing efforts on social media and forge new community partnerships. The staff and the board of directors have remained dedicated, compassionate, and tireless in their efforts. As donors and volunteers, you continued to give us your all – you gave your time, talent, and treasures and helped us Bridge the Gap where and when we needed it the most.

As 2021 shines bright in the future, we at Family Advocates will be looking to Advancing Hope for our families through growing and deepening our community partnerships and collaborations, finding unique fundraising opportunities, and continuing as a trusted non-profit leader in the community.

From our family to yours, we wish all of you a healthy and safe holiday.

With gratitude,
Kathryn Seebold, Executive Director
