Support Funding for Healthy Families

In Sexual Assault Awareness on February 19, 2010 at 11:53 am

HEALTHY FAMILIES NEEDS YOUR HELP, WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT FAMILIES WILL LOSE SERVICES AND HEALTHY FAMILIES SITES ACROSS VIRGINIA MAY CLOSE THEIR DOORS.

 TODAY IS THE LAST DAY; you, your families and your community supporters must CALL OR FAX A LETTER to the Governor’s Office to let him know that you OPPOSE his recommendation to eliminate funding for Healthy Families. 

Include information about how families in your community will be affected if Healthy Families isn’t there.  If you are in a community where there are shrinking resources already, let him know how important Healthy Families is for your youngest, most vulnerable children and their parents.  

SOME OF YOU MAY NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE IN CALLING YOUR LEGISLATOR AND MAY FEEL

INTIMIDATED, DON’T!  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL 1-804-786-2211.

An automoated voice message will begin: 

Press “0” to speak to an aide.  Once they pick up state that you would like to comment on the Governor’s Budget. 

They will ask for your name and phone number.  Then they will ask for your comment 

STATE: “YOU DISAGREE WITH THE ELIMINATION OF FUNDING FOR HEALTHY FAMILIES”.

They will thank you and that’s it. 

It takes 3 minutes, it that.   

 The Governor’s Office needs to be FLOODED with calls and letters. (There is no e-mail address available)

Phone: 804-786-2211

Fax:  804-371-6351

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO OUR COMMUNITITES FAMILIES.
