Who is your family hero? (November 2021 Newsletter)

Dear Friends,

As Thanksgiving approaches, I’m thinking about family heroes: the people who keep our families strong.

Their methods are as diverse as families themselves — perhaps it’s baking, peacemaking, or storytelling – but however they go about it, family heroes work hard to keep their loved ones safe, healthy, and together.

While memories of my own family’s heroes are strongest during the holidays, at Ascend Justice we are privileged to work with family heroes all year long. Their legal issues vary, but at the heart of most of our cases are clients who are just trying to protect their families and stay close to their children. These clients are the heroes of their families, and we are honored to support them.

This holiday season, please help these family heroes by honoring or remembering your own family hero with a gift to Ascend Justice. By funding the work of our skilled, compassionate advocates, your donation will make all the difference for families in crisis.
