Giving Thanks
Here at Family Ark, we are grateful for so many things. Foremost, we are grateful for the foster parents, families and children we serve. Through them, we see how our efforts make such a difference. We champion their cause every day and for this we give thanks. We are grateful for our partners, supporters, volunteers and board members. Without them, our impact diminishes and we lessen our reach into the community. For all these people, we give thanks. Lastly, we are grateful for our passion. Our passion propels us to find the answers for children who are most in need. For all of this, we give thanks in November.
May you and your loved ones experience a Thanksgiving full of peace, reflection, and love.
