Since Connecting for Kids first began, we have provided education and support for thousands of families who have a concern about their child.

Our annual fundraiser not only highlights how important Connecting for Kids' work is to our community, but also allows our organization to raise funds to support programming, including providing expert speakers and support groups, hands-on training sessions and numerous resources to empower parents to enable their child to reach his or her full potential.
