Greetings and Happy New Year!

 This letter is a request for your support for an upcoming 5K Road Race and Walk-a-Thon to benefit at-risk families in Middle Georgia and Beyond.

  In 2009, community volunteers came together with one goal in mind – to provide a safe, home-like environment for supervised visitation between children in foster care and their parents. Thus, the Priss & Frank Family Center was born. Our long-term goal is for every child to grow up in a safe, loving, nurturing and stable family. We know that families with these attributes are the foundation of thriving communities. So, let’s work together to save our children!

 Here's a little background information about the Priss & Frank Center to bring your up to speed: We are an independent, non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization that depends heavily on donations from the communities we serve, for families that don’t have open cases with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFACS). All proceeds go directly to the Center to provide families with the specialized services they need. Therefore, your partnership is vitally important.

 All families referred to the Center are assessed to determine what services they need. Services include parenting coaching, where instructors work with parents by encouraging them to use the skills they learn under the supervision of the Center's staff. Timely, constructive feedback helps parents learn how to handle family situations and prevent their children from entering foster care. In other cases, individualized training dictated by DFACS prepares parents for reunification with their children. In addition, we offer counseling, supervised visitations, parenting classes, life skills courses, transportation, GED Readiness, Job Readiness, access to a food pantry and a clothing closet.
