On this Giving Tuesday we are THANKFUL for all of our amazing community partners, families and staff.

Today we asked staff to share their โ€œWHYโ€. What drives them to work here at Options & Advocacy?

Here is what some of them shared โค

If you werenโ€™t able to purchase tickets for our Roaring 20โ€™s Gala, but would still like to make a contribution the Foglia Family Foundation will double your impact by matching up to $40,000 in donations this season.

Thank you for supporting our O&A Team and making a difference in the lives of others!
