Strengthening Families Luncheon

Join us on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at the Olympia Country and Golf Club 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 over 19 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.
