This holiday season, share your family traditions with your child! Sing a lullaby that your mother or father sang to you or tell your child about stories from your own childhood. You can also start your own traditions with your child: a special weekend breakfast or a weekly game night are fun ways to bond with your child.

If you don't know the Kelly Family, you should!! They are so kind, caring and generous.

Every year they host a big hog roast for their family and friends, but the best part is that they choose an organization to give back to by asking for at will donations. This year they chose Family & Youth Services Bureau to be the recipient and their family and friends donated over $2,000 .

WE ARE BEYOND GRATEFUL!!! A huge thank you to the Kelly Family for choosing our agency and to their family & friends that donated.

Pictured below is Katherine Kelly, her four boys and Carrie Honeycutt, Director of Operations.
