It is with deep regret that the Families First Board of Directors has made the difficult but prudent decision to cancel this years Families First 10th Annual Trivia Night event.

We are beginning to plan for the 11th Annual Trivia Night and will have information forthcoming. But until then please mark your calendars for Saturday, March 13, 2021 with a start time of 5:30 PM.

Did You Know?

  • Homelessness, is a state in which an individual or family lacks a fixed, regular & adequate nighttime residence.

  • Over 50% of the children in Monroe County school districts live in a household in which inadequate income makes them eligible for free or reduced breakfast & lunch while in school.  For some children, these will be the only adequate meals of the day they will receive.

  • It is legal for households to be evicted in the middle of winter; in sub-zero temperatures, for non-payment of rent.  Whether children are in the house or not has no bearing in the process.

  • Water & sewer services can also be disconnected at any time of the year, for non-payment of this utility fee.

  • Monroe County has no shelter facility for homeless single persons or families.
