Fall 2018 Newsletter

Feeling the love of family and the safety of home is at the core of what we hope people feel after working with staff at Family &
Children’s Service of Ithaca.

Many of our youth programs focus on strengthening home life and improving family relationships. Likewise, our clinical program supports countless individuals throughout Tompkins County with the goal of building strong family systems. Sometimes the biggest difference we make is with people who don’t communicate with, or identify as being part of, a family. When they turn to F&CS for support, we work to help rebuild connections within themselves and their community.

Our fundraising events always focused on family and a sense of home. Cayuga at Twilight was 20 years of community members welcoming us into their homes. That event retired, but this year we invite you into our home.

On September 16, 2018 we’ll welcome you to 127 West MLK Jr. / State Street to celebrate 10 years in our new home. I hope you will join us to take a behind the scenes look at the work we do; experience first-hand the innovative practices we use—from embodied play therapy to art therapy–and interact with the compassionate staff here at F&CS.

After your self-guided tour, meet us out back where the festivities begin. We will celebrate with delicious eats by Gola Osteria, a performance by the Fall Creek Brass Band, a birthday cake cutting, and live drawings of our fabulous Finger Lakes experience raffles.

I hope you will join the F&CS family in our home.
