BENEFITING: ABOUT FAMILIES INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2014
About Families is a community organization founded on the belief that families are happier and healthier with support and education. By bringing together professionals in family development, parents are given the necessary tools to raise their children with confidence. Just as important as the professional component is the value of building community amongst families. By facilitating positive parenting, About Families is creating proactive steps to bond families from the beginning.
About Families is a 501(c)(3). The organizations success is due to the generosity of local donors and clients. Donations will go towards facilitating support groups and clinics for the immediate pregnancy and postpartum period. According to Postpartum Support International, one in eight women suffer from postpartum mood disorders. The most effective treatment for most of these disorders is peer support groups. About Families is the only organization in the Coachella Valley offering these kind of groups. With the monetary help of $5,000 this will help fund and subsidize or most educational and support programs we offer such as, Childbirth Class, Newborn Care and Infant CPR. Your donation fills the gap between the expense of classes, and subsidizes the cost for more families to benefit and receive the education as well as help fund our center.
