Thank You Volunteers
Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in. In recognition of Volunteer Week the staff and Touchstone Family Association’s Board of Directors are voluntarily committed to ensuring support services for families are available when needed.
We salute their commitment and dedication to the Richmond community.
Richmond Children First, a committee Touchstone is a member of, released a report on November 20th: "It's Not Fair! The Face of Child Poverty in Richmond" The report will help broaden your understanding of what it means to be a child living in poverty in Richmond. A report that will bring forward your understanding of how to help Richmond children and families in poverty. Access the report in the publications section on this site.
Please note the Restorative Justice Event on November 21st has been cancelled.
