Exciting Family Closet Feedback!

The Family Closet received some complimentary feedback from a social worker this week that we wanted to pass along to our followers and supporters!

Good afternoon Karen, 

I just wanted to reach out and thank you/give you kudos. The two caregivers I referred to you last week had nothing but positive things to say about their experience with your program. They were extremely appreciative of the quality and quantity of the items you offered, but spoke even more positively of the treatment they received from the people they interacted with. They both informed me that they felt very welcome and comfortable and were impressed with the coziness and child-friendly set-up. One also mentioned your daughter, Amalie, by name and felt that she was extremely kind and helpful.  

This is the first time I have referred to your program, and let me just say that it is a beautiful thing to hear such positive regard from my clients. Keep on doing amazing work!!

The Family Closet is Open!

Our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was on May 9th!  The Family Closet is now open to foster, foster to adopt, adoptive, kinship and guardianship families.

What an exciting night for us!  We had about 70 people from our community helping us to kick-off The Family Closet, which will provide resources to foster and adoptive families and also allow us to help those in kinship and guardianship situations.  

The Waukesha County Business Alliance hosted the event, which included speakers Paul Farrow (County Executive of Waukesha) and Judge William Domina (Waukesha County).  

A special thanks to our sponsors:  Meli Restaurant and Bar, Children's Community Health Plan and Melissa Belter Photography!

Thanks to all of our volunteers and guests who helped make this night a success!!
