Moments of Gratitude

As we all take a little time to reflect on our personal journey over the past year, I’d like to share a few moments of gratitude with you.

I’m grateful that you’ve become part of the Forward Foundation Family.

I’m grateful that we’ve been able to offer support and comfort to you and your family during a very difficult time in your life.

I’m grateful for all of the amazing partners and volunteers that have made our programs possible.

May you continue to move forward with kindness, hope, and joy in 2022.

With warm regards,

Executive Director/CEO

Finding Joy in the Holidays

The holidays are about finding joy. Joy in the small moments – hanging ornaments on the tree – and joy in the big ones – seeing the look on a child’s face on Christmas morning.

It’s important not to let all the rush and activity steal your joy. We love iMoms’s toolkit of cherishing the holidays without losing yourself or your sanity.

No matter what, we want you to know that just being you is more than enough. It’s the gift your kids are truly thankful for this year. We look forward to sharing more tips on Facebook and Instagram that will help you enjoy the season. Happy Holidays!
