Growing Up, Growing Together

“Thank you Maryland Family Network for being there for me and my family when we needed you,” Unique Brooks, a parent in MFN's Family Support Network, told the over 150 in attendance at our 2019 First Years Breakfast. “With your help, we will continue growing strong together.”

The First Years Breakfast is MFN’s only fundraising event of the year and it is a chance to hear first-hand from the parents, child care providers, and champions who have personally benefitted from the work of Maryland Family Network. Held on November 7 at the Suburban Club, this year’s theme was “growing up, growing together.”

Carolina Reyes, director of Arco Iris Bilingual Children's Center, also gave a moving testimonial about the impact of MFN’s mission: “I have taken advantage of just about every service and training (MFN) offers in order to be successful and have a teaching staff who are paid living wages and have generous benefits.” Click on the videos above to listen to the rest of Unique and Carolina’s stories.
