A Note from our President

A message from our Board President about the power of Kindness…

As the President of Family Services of the Merrimack Valley, I am very proud of the impact the organization has on the lives of so many people in our community. The word that comes to mind when I think about Family Services and its impact on children and families in our community, is kindness.
I am writing now to share some highlights of how the power of kindness has been spread by Family Services this past year – a year in which people of all ages needed kindness more than ever!
This past year year, Family Services:
  • Supported 1,197 parents, guardians, and caregivers through the challenges of raising children in a world upended by remote schooling, food insecurity, and emotional stress.
  • Helped more than 650 young people become strong, confident adults through mentoring, leadership development, and individual support and guidance. 
  • Trained 656 professionals, volunteers and community members in suicide prevention, trauma response, relationship skills, and self-care.
Family Services was able to do all this with the support of people like YOU. With your continued support, they will do even more going forward!  
As you consider your charitable giving plans for year-end, we hope that you will choose to support this work with a tax-deductible gift to Family Services.
Thank you.
Gary Sidell
Board President
