Family Support Center of South Sound is a nonprofit 501c3 multi-service agency located in Olympia, Washington, founded in 1992 to provide families and survivors of violence with coordinated, supportive services in one centralized location. You can learn more about our programs and services here.
Our Mission - "Working Together to Strengthen All Families"
Our Vision - We envision a community where all families are valued, nurtured, and have the resources to be strong, healthy, and self sufficient.
Each year, we host a short, fun 1 hour event that raises $10,000 to support survivors of domestic violence in our community. Like most things, this year's 100 Men Who Care About Domestic Violence is going to be a lot different! We have FOURways that you can participate:
1 - Be a CHAMPION Against Domestic Violence by helping us raise critical funds for survivors in Thurston County. Champions get a free T-shirt and lots of chances to win cool prizes!!
2 - Buy one of these awesome, unique T-shirts. For $100 you can show your support for survivors all year long! Get yours today by CLICKING HERE!
3 -Speak Up! Working with the Aaron Thomas Home Team, we are creating a short video that gives men a chance to tell other men, and our entire community, why you care about domestic violence and what MEN can do to help end it. It is easy, just record yourself answering a few questions and upload the video to Google Drive or Dropbox and share the file firstname.lastname@example.org.
