Family Matters: News and information from Family Resource Center of South Florida, Inc. A non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect.
Sweet Chance
Our Sweet Chance event was on November 6th at the Shooting Stardust Studios and La Jolla Ballroom. Family Resource Center had the opportunity to partner up with Sweet Chance to throw our teenagers a Sweet 16/Quinces birthday celebration. We were able to take our teenagers to find dresses/suits and they were able to get their makeup and hair done as well. We had professional photographers that took each and every one of the teenagers photos. They were then transported in a huge limo to the reception hall in Coral Gables, which they ended dancing the night away. It was definitely a night to remember!

Give Miami Day was on November 15. Family Resource Center would like to say THANK YOU to all of our donors for your support on this very special day.
National Adoption Day
National Adoption Day was held on November 16 at the Miami Children's Museum. FRC completed 23 adoptions out of the 61 that was finalized on NAD. Thank you to Leiseann and her team for everything they do on a daily basis and for making this possible for all of our children.
Thanksgiving Drive
Thank you to all of our donors for donating all these Thanksgiving supplies to our families. Our families were able to grab a grocery bag and do their grocery shopping in our lobby this past Thursday, November 15. They were all so grateful and wanted to thank all of you for your support.
