  • 3-4 Professional Development Conferences annually, in person or virtual
  • Support for specific service-area networking, ongoing meetings

Your financial contributions truly are vital to our existence, as is your participation and membership. Thank you for the teamwork to support our most vulnerable children and families in Virginia, especially as we continue to navigate the effects of the pandemic on our children, families, and staff. As always, we are stronger together.
