March 2015

2015 will mark an exciting milestone for Hawley & Associates...10 years in business!

Back in 2005 we had a vision of forming a specialized insurance brokerage focused on the unique insurance needs of adoption and foster care agencies nationwide. In fact, we were the first in the country to be so specialized!  Now, we proudly serve not only the child welfare community, but all aspects of social service and human service as well.  It's all we do!
Little did we know 10 years ago, that we would make such an impact in helping create better lives for children, families and communities around the world.  Our H&A Caring Fund Grant is directly impacting the bureaucracy of the adoption process in Colombia and our exclusive insurance programs are saving our clients thousands of dollars; dollars they can put back into the programs and services that better the lives of so many!

Thank you for supporting Hawley & Associates and for allowing us to share in your commitment in making the world a better place! Here's to another 10 years!

Lifeline Children's Services 
sponsor children 
from Chongqing City, China!
Phil Hawley had the pleasure of meeting with our client, Lifeline Children's Services, in New Orleans, while he was already in the area attending a client fundraising event (see Raintree Child & Family Services below).  

Phil happily joined Lifeline's China Team at the airport as they picked up a group of children visiting the states from an orphanage in Chongqing City, China.  

The children will be attending Lifeline's Children's Winter Camp. The goal of this endeavor is to shower these children with love, introduce them to the culture of the southern United States, meet prospective adoptive families and provide them with some unique and fun experiences!  

This is an important element in Lifeline's on-going development of their orphanage partnerships in China.

We love our clients and love what they do for our world!

H&A Sponsors Bluegrass Band at NATSAP Conference in 
Nashville, TN.

Hawley & Associates was excited to exhibit at the 2015 NATSAP (National Association for Therapeutic Schools and Programs) annual conference in Nashville, TN. TJ Armstrong and Tammy Christensen represented H&A. 

Hawley & Associates also sponsored the North Country Bluegrass Band who performed between sessions and during the lunch break. They were a huge hit and a great addition to the event! What is Nashville without some bluegrass?!

We met some amazing people and learned of some exceptional programs focused around in-patient, out-patient addiction treatment, residential treatment, at-risk youth services, and therapeutic schools & programs.  

We are so thrilled to be a part of this giving community by providing exceptional insurance products to these unique organizations. 

Phil Hawley Attends 
 Raintree Child & Family Services Fundraiser in New Orleans, LA.

Phil Hawley, President of Hawley & Associates was proud not only to attend but sponsor this year's Raintree Child & Family Services "Paint The Town Green" fundraiser, in New Orleans, LA.  

Raintree is a non-profit agency providing meaningful assistance for at-risk children/youth in the Greater New Orleans area. They have been serving the community for 89 years!  

Their programs not only provide a safe home for abused and neglected young girls, but also provides services for children with developmental disabilities and foster care services.

The fundraiser was located inside Harrah's Casino and included a silent and live auction, catered dinner and incredible live music (see picture above). It was a fun evening with a beautiful setting, and an even more beautiful cause!
