)-- TD Charitable Foundation recently awarded a $20,000 grant to Family Service’s In-Home Family Service (IIFS) program. “The TD Charitable Foundation is pleased to be able to provide grants to organizations like Family Service County. We are confident that the Intensive In-Home Family Service of Family Learning Center is a unique initiative to promote healthy families and communities and we remain committed to supporting organizations that improve the quality of life for those communities we serve,” said TD Bank market president, Rob Curley.
Family Service’s children’s programs are geared to prevent abuse and neglect, strengthen families and help forge new, loving relationships. Programs provide safe, therapeutic living environments and when appropriate, foster reunification of children with their families. The Family Learning Center, located at the Charles Yates Center for Children & Families in Lumberton, meets the needs of at-risk families challenged by mental illness. The new Intensive In-Home Family Service component of the program will be very beneficial in preventing the relapse of negative behaviors.
Family Service is extremely grateful for the support and commitment of the TD Charitable Foundation. “We truly appreciate TD Charitable Foundation’s generosity and longstanding commitment to our agency. With their help, programs like the Family Learning Center can continue improving the lives of children and families in need throughout our community,” said Family Service President & CEO, Bob Pekar.
