Family Support Parents Take Action In Harrisburg

The Family Support Rally and Legislative Workday on April 16th  saw parents and staff representing Family Support with enthusiasm, passion, and a shared commitment to strengthening families and communities. In addition to a rally on the Capitol steps, they had individual meetings with 12 Allegheny County legislators who have centers in their districts!
