Salem Family Resources Breakfast


Today was the Annual Breakfast Fundraiser for Salem Family Resources — Success By 6. The more I see of this organization, the more impressed I am!

Salem Family Resources has a vision: “Every Child a Successful Child.” SFR’s goals are to build awareness and understanding of the needs of young children and their families, to improve access to services and information, and to present a united voice for children. They do this by providing “support and programs in the Greater Salem area to help families, caregivers and early childhood educators meet the physical, social, emotional and educational needs of young children.”

Their programs include: The Learning Cooperative Preschool, Parenting & Play Groups, Workshops for Parents and Early Childhood Educators, and Babysitter Training, as well as resource and referral programs and community collaborations.

At today’s breakfast, Salem Family Resources honored several individuals and one organization for their work in helping this organization and the kids of the community.
