What's Happening

For the past 17 years, Family Care Network has hosted its largest fundraiser of the year, Miracle Miles for Kids, to raise critical funds for our children and families in need. As we are unable to host Miracle Miles for kids this year, and due to this unprecedented community crisis-- our families need you now more than ever.

We know that this is a challenging time for our entire community. And while we all face new realities, we are dedicated to remaining a beacon of hope for our community’s most vulnerable kids and families.

How you can help

We need your help to spread the word about this critical Pledge Drive so that we can ensure that our families stay together and have their urgent needs met. So we’ve put together this toolkit, complete with resources, ready-to-use social media posts, flyers, and more to help get you started!

By utilizing your personal networks for good, you can help make a huge impact in our community. Thank you for taking the time to support our families and for sticking with us during this difficult time. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you.
