Spring Appeal

The Family Center was recently honored with the Grosse Pointe Chamber of Commerce's first ever Pointer of Distinction - Excellence in Nonprofit Activity Award. The Chamber recognized our ability to "listen and respond" as we "develop and deliver" compelling new programs.

We thank you, our generous supporters, as the work we do could not be accomplished without your philanthropic investment.

Our most recent programs drew large audiences for "Drugs and Alcohol: What Parents and Professionals Need to Know;" "Taking Care While Giving Care;" "Pick Two for Your Healthy Future;" and annual "LEGO® Artists Challenge." Play Central draws a large audience every week at Barnes school where our youngest community members and their caregivers can enjoy indoor playtime and socialization with other families.

Join Us with a Tax-Deductible Gift

Dear Friend of The Family Center,

The Family Center is noted as the go-to resource that provides unique programs and services to kids and families in our community. We are able to do so because of philanthropic gifts from people like you. Your gifts support prevention and early intervention, the keys to long-term family health and well being.

The Family Center understands the value of providing timely resources to families on important topics such as youth trends, health issues, transition milestones, and societal influences. Recognizing the early signs of teen depression, a child’s autistic tendencies, developmental delays and unusual behavioral traits can lead to early diagnosis, treatment and better outcomes.

This past year, community gifts like yours supported Family Center speakers who addressed important topics such as teen suicide prevention, the dark side of our achievement culture, the transitions to kindergarten and to college, anger management and self-care for mothers.

Family Center Spotlight

The Family Center is pleased to recognize Gail and Lois Warden as "philanthropists extraordinaire."

Lois and Gail model the role of philanthropists as they have shared their financial support as well as time and talent. The Warden's earliest gifts to The Family Center supported operations in a fledgling nonprofit, and their gifts continue to support programs to families and kids. Lois guided the transition of our signature fundraiser from a small event to our major gala event, the HOLLYFEST auction and dinner.
