We Need YOU!

We are writing today to ask for your help.

And you may be wondering "Why?"

Here is our answer...

Because your gift is necessary to maintain Sprout Family Services as a vital resource for families in your community. Your gift is needed to keep the vision alive: that all children reach their full potential!

Nearly 30 years ago, the State of Alaska gave our community a grant to provide support to infants and toddlers experiencing delays in development. Today, that relationship remains alive and the work has expanded to all families with children 0 -5. But times in our state are tough. State grants have historically paid a large portion of our upkeep (about 65%) but we have to raise the rest. And, this year we are expecting to need to raise more due to state funding cuts.

So we need friends like you. Friends whose support pays for everything that is available to our community: our playgroups; monthly book-giving program; parent coaching and support; home-visiting; family lending library with books, toys and equipment; pediatric therapies for children; highly trained staff; and kid-friendly surroundings – all that make Sprout the community’s early childhood hub. Simply put, this is why we’re asking for your help.

If you have not already done so this holiday season, please consider a gift to Sprout today or securely online at www.sproutalaska.org. Your support, no matter the size, will help us to sustain all that we offer to promote the healthy development of children and families.

Thank you for being a friend of Sprout,

Jillian Lush

Executive Director
