Strengthening Families Luncheon

Join us in September 2020 for our Annual Strengthening Families Luncheon as we create public awareness of the important role Family Education & Support Services plays in the lives of families in our community. For 20 years, Family Education & Support Services (FESS) has been assisting vulnerable families in the South Sound with the skills, support and resources necessary to ensure the children in their care thrive. Our Annual Strengthening Families Luncheon plays an important role in the financial support of these impactful programs and supports.

Stay tuned for next year’s info!
