Hope Lives Here
A Day of Food, Music and Fun 
These strong moms enjoyed Caribbean Day, sponsored by the Hyacinth Foundation,
offering HIV, glucose and blood pressure testing and linkage to medical treatment.
This field trip was organized by our StrongMothers program which provides specialized
substance abuse treatment with parenting and life-skills training to help moms
build a life of recovery for themselves and their families.
A lot of good things are happening at FAMILYConnections
with your support.
Thank you and enjoy your summer!
