Reaching Out to Family Outreach

Hundreds of brand new coloring books are going to be enjoyed by the children served by the Family Outreach Program of Amherst. The coloring books were provided by Reader To Reader from a generous donation from Modern Publishing.

Family Outreach of Amherst was established in 1989 in response to the closing of an Amherst homeless shelter for women and children. The goal of Family Outreach of Amherst is to support and assist the most vulnerable members of in the community, working with families who struggle with mental health, trauma, medical, substance abuse, and life skills issues.

What a great program!
