CALL FROM THE HEART

Tag us! @FamilyChildren | #FCA_AT_HOME


WELCOME TO

Welcome to Family & Children’s Agency’s (FCA) first-ever virtual

event, FCA@Home! We are thrilled you are able to join us this

evening in support of the life-changing programs FCA provides

to our neighbors in need. This amazing organization touches the

lives of more than 13,000 children, families, adults, and seniors

each year.

We would like to thank the FCA@Home Committee and the

Agency’s Board of Directors, individual donors, and corporate

sponsors for their support of tonight’s event. As many of you may

know, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in mid-March, FCA

was forced to make some quick decisions, pivoting to address the

safety of their clients, volunteers, and supporters. Unfortunately,

this included cancelling our signature event, IMAGINE, which

raises much-needed funds for the Agency’s many programs.

Tonight, we will bring FCA into your home and you will learn

about the Agency’s COVID-19 response and how they continue to

provide critical services to our community during this challenging

time. You will see the depth and breadth of FCA’s services and

how they deliver them to those in need, often in their homes, and

how they help them to realize life’s possibilities.

We invite you to join with us tonight in supporting Family &

Children’s Agency during the “paddle” raise, our Call from the

Heart, or at any point throughout the event. Your support this

evening is more critical than ever right now. We thank you in

advance for your consideration and generosity. Together we

change lives.
