Life Happens. We’re Here to Help.
Every day, an individual struggles in our community. They struggle with work, family, school, addiction, mental health, and countless other daily challenges that keep them from living their best life.
For more than 50 years, Employee & Family Resources has focused its efforts toward the success of individuals and families. By supporting EFR, you can help someone when they need it most!
Donations to EFR help support the Counseling programs, ensuring access to these valuable services to thousands of people in our community.
Has a particular EFR program helped you or a loved one during a challenging time? You can direct your financial gift to any of the following programs we offer, or to where it is currently needed most:
Sponsor Ride Don’t Hide, EFR’s annual bike ride to raise funds and awareness for our counseling and student assistance programs. This event also aims to eliminate the stigma behind mental illness by normalizing and encouraging those seeking help. To learn more about the different levels and perks of sponsorship, contact Louise Crall at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-471-2362.
The Birdies for Charity program provides a 10% match on all pledges made through the program. Matching funds will be distributed up to $100,000 in collected pledges, not to exceed $10,000 in matching funds. Funds are distributed throughout the year. Here’s how to donate:
The donation of goods and/or services is essential to any non-profit organization. Donated materials or volunteer support are often just as valuable as monetary contributions. To learn if your contribution is one that would fit the needs of EFR, please contact Louise Crall at email@example.com or 515-471-2362 prior to your contribution.
If your organization has a matching gift program, you can increase the impact of your donation to EFR and help even more people. Check with your company to see if they offer such a program. Contact Louise Crall at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-471-2362 for more information.
A gift made to EFR in memory of or in tribute of a friend or relative is a wonderful way to recognize and honor their impact to you and others. An acknowledgement of your contribution (no amounts are noted) will be sent to the individual or family in whatever way you request.
Arrange a memorial or tribute gift here.
All donations are tax deductible as prescribed by law. Employee & Family Resources is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Any and all gifts are greatly appreciated as we strive to help people with life’s challenges.
Note: If you donate a gift of $100 or more, you will be listed in EFR’s annual report!
Student Assistance Program (SAP) & Outpatient Counseling
Maddox*, an elementary-aged student, struggled with anger outbursts, physical aggression, and difficulties with problem-solving. After spending years off-and-on in therapy seeking treatment with various providers only to remark that “none seemed to want to listen,” Maddox’s parents sought SAP services through their district.
Today, Maddox is completing his SAP sessions and moving towards outpatient counseling. He has reduced his anger outbursts and has learned skills to help him successfully navigate challenging days.
