Happy New Year!
Family Service Association of Glens Falls, Inc. helped many families and individuals with urgent situations throughout the year. We received extraordinary support this past year, and want to extend a special thank you to those agencies, businesses, and community members: Tri County United Way, Common Roots Foundation, Stewart’s, Arrow Financial, AHI, Adirondack Outreach Services, Wright Family Foundation, Alfred Z Solomon Trust, Adirondack Trust Helping Hands, Charles R Wood Foundation, City of Glens Falls, local donors, businesses, schools and the Faith community. Thank You! With your support, we were able to help in more than 2,500 total cases during 2022.
We provided financial assistance for rent, emergency housing, heat, transportation, and urgent medical needs in more than 200 different cases in 2022. We distributed diapers and formula, on average, to 4 families each week. We put together more than 1200 healthy food pantry packages that helped nourish those facing food insecurity. Feet First and Adopt A Family had record number of families enrolled. We all worked together to keep families safe, sheltered and fed.
Thank you to the many donors and sponsors throughout the community for your generous contributions during this Christmas season. The in-kind support received for our holiday programs was extraordinary and thanks to you, we did not have to turn any families away. Each family was extremely appreciative and had some beautiful words of thanks:
We help people in a situation that is beyond their resources by guiding them
toward resolution with kindness, assistance and support.
A new year is a great time to reflect on our mission and ensure that the work we do accomplishes our goals. With that in mind, we’re already preparing for another excellent year and look forward to all that is to come in 2023. Thank you to everyone who supports Family Service Association because you make it possible for us to carry out our mission.
