Nurture The Promise Circle Of Care Virtual Event Flyer

On Thursday, October 15th from your own safe space, your support can continue to educate, enhance and strengthen relationships for children and families - helping them create a brighter, stronger future. Funds will be used responsibly to help those we serve, like Megan and her daughter, as they continue their journey towards academic and life success.

Megan Crawford Chuck Parr Empowerment Award

Your support enables Riverbend Head Start and Family Services' highly skilled staff to create partnerships with parents and the many other people who care for kids so they can meet children where they are, understand their needs and behaviors, and nurture them. All of the programs and services of Head Start works to help vulnerable children become strong adults, leading strong families who continue to create a stronger community for all.

The Circle of Care History

The Circle of Care Award was established in 1994 by Mary Cox, Sandy Lauschke, and Nancy Ryrie. The three envisioned a way to generate support for Riverbend Head Start & Family Services by recognizing community leaders who exhibit a strong sense of service and philanthropy.

Over the past 25 years, the annual tribute has acknowledged the following recipients: Dr. Paul Pierce, Rod & Jane St. Clair, Essic Robinson, Dale & Carol Neudecker, Judge Nicholas Byron & Josephine Beckwith, Jim Goodwin & Buddy Davis, Paul & Sandy Lauschke, Jack & Betty Jacoby, Don Miller, Anna Beach & Andy Simpson, Ron McMullen, Steve & Mary Lou Cousley, Senator William Haine, Tom & Jeana Hutchinson, Bill & Pat Kessler, Diana Enloe, Ed & Nancy Ryrie, Mike & Cindy Lefferson, Dr. Robert & Charlene Hamilton, Ed & Patty Morrissey, Bill & Vicki Schrimpf, Dwight & Cheryl Werts, Steve & Jane Saale and Lisa Nielsen & Michael Moehn. In 2017, Riverbend Head Start & Family Services welcomed Randy and Beth Gori to the esteemed circle of honorees. As a part of the 25th Anniversary Celebration, all Circle Alumni were invited to the event in 2018. During the 2019 Circle of Care, The Honorable David Hylla and his wife, Anita Hylla were honored and celebrated by many across the Madison County area.
