Our Board of Directors are volunteers who are committed to Grow a Strong Family’s Mission which is to support families uprooted by mental illness.  Their tireless efforts to support the organization through marketing, outreach, and fundraising is an ongoing source of fulfillment mixed with just a slight sprinkle of angst.  Nonetheless, the Board is a team.

We are always on the looklout for volunteers who want to commit their time, energy, professionalism, and knowledge to promoting the organization.  Feel free to contact us:

Laura Baliestero hosted a wonderful gala, “Women I Love Lots” as our first major fundraiser.  The event was a gift to attendees for supporting her through her journey in navigating forward from adversity.  The speakers shared their strength, hope and experience.  The event was a success on all levels!
