Capital Campaign: Help Us Bridge The Gap

SKSF is in the midst of a Capital Campaign to raise funds to purchase the current facility for the Zach’s Place Program at the Laurie Hillyard Family Center and create a permanent home for the program. Owning the building and keeping overhead costs low is an important facet of our long-term financial stability, which will help us provide respite care for years to come.

Please consider being a part of our effort either by making a contribution, participating in an event or joining our committee to lend your expertise.
