As we reflect on the year, Family House sends thanksgiving blessings to you and yours. This year will be simple. We are reflective and grateful. We are celebrating simply and safely and thinking of others. We are grateful for this community and the love and support of each other that is second to none! This community is strong. We will continue to work tirelessly to serve our children and families. Many are struggling in many different ways. Mental health matters. Family is defined differently for each of us. Many of us are helping differently - in ways we know and can. Family House is proud to be a part of this strong community. This Thanksgiving - Take care of yourself and Take care of your loved ones. Be kind. Be compassionate. #lovewins
Celebrate in your heart and in your way.

On Veterans' Day here are some ways you can honor those who have served:
1. Acknowledge Veterans for their service by saying a simple: “Thank you for your service.” Whether that’s on Facebook, a text message, a phone call, a letter, or an in-person greeting, a basic acknowledgment can go a long way.
2. Get involved in your community where veterans frequent: i.e., VFW, local Vet Center, American Legion, or local non-for-profit. Veteran organizations are always looking for volunteers. Ask them what they need the most and see if you are able to meet that demand.
3. Educate yourself on military cultural competence by reading current articles on military-related topics and/or having a conversation with a veteran or service member on what they think you should know. Simply taking an interest with the intention of learning will go a long way as well.
These are three basic things that you can do moving forward to help acknowledge a veteran or service member in your community. On this national holiday, you may take action in whatever manner has meaning for you! (Psychology Today, 2017 M. Brennan, PsyD)

Thank you Valparaiso Sunrise Kiwanis For your generous support for our Family House families and kids !
I had the chance to see the Speciality Creations team in action at the 2017 Popcorn Festival. All I can say is "5 Stars across the entire board." The food they had on hand was the freshest and most delicious, the Chef Christian was a creative, energetic, and incredibly talented person, and the holiday vibe they created with the beautiful food sculptures and displays had the crowd totally entranced. On top of all that, their heart is in the right place as well, as they donated to the Family House too! Wonderful work! Wonderful team! I could not be more impressed! BRAVO! Please Share so that people can learn about this extraordinary enterprise! Thanks!
