Vision Statement: Work hand in hand with the community to educate youth and families to make healthy long-term life decisions.
As the Holiday season quickly approaches and we start spending time with loved ones, being thankful for what we have and who we get to spend our time with. We must not forget those who are struggling and can't cover the family needs. The economy has taken a toll on many and they struggle to make it through each day. FYI works with everyone in a family from before birth to adulthood to help them have the best quality of life they can achieve. Please consider helping FYI support those n need. We have two events going on right now that yu could contribute to. One is so very easy by casting your VOTE FOR FYI at Holmes gives back..If we won we would use the money to buy diapers and other vital supplies for the most vulnerable of our clients, the babies. They are unable to fend for themselves and often there are life events that are very challenging for the new parents or pregnant women. Here is a quote from a past client of the Women's Network. "The Women's Network offered me peace during pregnancy with my daughter, through emotional and material support. Through the Women's Network I was given friendship by women who cared about my well being as well as my safety and well being of my child. They helped provide the necessities that all babies need to ensure safety, care, and love..." - Anonymous
