The Family Support Center at the Christmas Box House wants to thank the members of our community who generously supported our recent Drive By For Pie fundraiser. It was a great success, those that donated money, gave tree items and/or purchased holiday pies, we want you to know your contribution will help us continue to serve children in need.

The purpose of The Family Support Center is to reduce the incidence of child abuse in Grand and San Juan County by providing a 24-hour crisis respite nursery as a family support system. We can provide services for court appearances, medical, dental, counseling appointments, job-seeking and family emergencies. In realizing that all parents undergo stress during the course of raising their children, our Crisis Nursery will provide accessible respite/crisis care and education to families as a means of preventing child abuse and neglect.

Our mission is to protect children, strengthen families and create a caring community. Please feel free to contact us at 259-1658 for more information on our services.

— Sherilyn Sowell,

director, the Family Support Center
