Fanning: Family Strengths Network Funding In Jeopardy

By Carie Fanning
Executive Director

Family Strengths Network is in jeopardy of losing critical financial support from Los Alamos County.

Let your voice be heard! Remind Los Alamos County why FSN is important to you and to the community.

Quick ways you can encourage Los Alamos County to fund FSN:

• Share this event – don’t just share, but invite everyone you know in the area that needs to know about this … and that is everyone here now, or previously!
• Change your profile photo using the filter from computer:
– hover over your profile pictures
– click “update”
– choose “add frame”
– type “Family Strengths Network” or “#thisismyFSN”
– click on frame selection and choose application length from mobile:
– go to your own profile
– tap on the camera icon on the bottom right of your profile picture
– choose “Add Frame”
– type “Family Strengths Network” or “#thisismyFSN” in the “Search frames” box at top of box
– tap on specifications to choose application length

• Again, individually invite your local friends to this event which is the single best way to get the word out on Facebook
• Share your family’s support via Public Comment for the Los Alamos County Council Session on June 9. Please do this even if you have supported FSN through public comment recently i.e. the Budget Hearing, etc. FSN will share separate guidelines on public comment in an upcoming post.
