The Advisory Board is the primary fundraising and public relations body
for Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services.


As the co-chairs of the Advisory Board we want to thank all of our members for their continued involvement in this wonderful organization.

But the success of Optimist goes beyond our members as we continually reach out to the private sector for support.  To those supporters, new and old, we offer our sincere appreciation for making our agency a part of your lives. Giving to others is really giving to ourselves and we hope that you all feel a sense of great satisfaction as a result.

We hope that you will continue to be involved with this magnificent child welfare agency that is truly a leader in the field.
