A special announcement from our CEO, Margie Wakeham and Board Chair, Gary Cohn
Today we are sharing the news that Margie is announcing her retirement from Families Forward. We are incredibly fortunate to have had such a visionary change agent as our leader for 26 years. The Families Forward Board of Directors will begin the process to search for a new CEO this spring and expects to complete the transition in time for our new fiscal year on October 1, 2019.

Thank you to our Founding Members!
We are inspired by the response to the launch of our Monthly Giving Program. Because of the generosity of our donors, Families Forward is able to provide consistent, quality services to our client families as they build the skills and resources to become self-sufficient again.
Upcoming Events
Community Wide
Food Drive

Families need food all year long – but there are times when our food donations decrease and our pantry shelves become nearly empty. To prepare for these slower times, Families Forward partners with local grocery stores and community groups to collect food donations that serve families every month of the year.
