You Have Helped Us Do Amazing Things!

Family Advocates is honored to serve over 600 children and families in need through our two programs. The Family Strengthening Education Program (FSEP), which equips parents with the knowledge and tools they need to raise a strong healthy family, and our Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program help make sure every child has a voice in court. These services are completely free to those who need them, but are not free to us.

Staff time, curriculum, supplies for backpacks for children in need, food for class participants, keeping the lights on at the office, and more…it all adds up! That’s why we are so incredibly grateful for our generous donors. So far in FY2022, our donors have given over $300,000! That’s not even including the value of all the backpacks, diapers, wipes, personal hygiene supplies, toys, books, etc. that our donors generously bring into our resource room week after week.

Our donors include members of our Giving Society who have chosen to show their commitment to helping children and families in need by pledging to give at least $5,000 over two years, awarding them the prestigious title of Champions for Children. They also include corporate donors such as the Basque Market, Perfect Plumbing Heating and Air, Boise Fitness Week, and Dutch Bros locations in East Valley Idaho, and Canyon County, who together raised over $36,000 through their own unique fundraisers to help ensure we are able to provide support to children and families with no gap in service.

It doesn’t matter if you were a corporate donor who can collect donations from a wide variety of people, an individual who has the means to become a Champion for Children, someone who donates supplies for our resource room, or an individual who can spare a few dollars on occasion. Everyone who donates to Family Advocates contributes to us being able to equip caregivers and children with the tools they need to prevent child abuse, and being able to serve 100% of the children appointed to our CASA program.

So, if you’re a donor, thank you for trusting us to do the right thing with your treasure. If you are not a donor, thank you for believing in us enough to learn about us, participate in our courses, volunteer, or spread the word about our services to your friends and family. With all of us working together, the possibilities truly are endless.
