Forestdale has been a part of the community for over 166 years, serving families in deep need of compassion and justice. As such, we condemn the acts that led to the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the systemic inequalities that exist to keep the status quo intact. We have seen first hand the effects of racism and intolerance on the families we serve, and we know it damages generations to come. Only with intense work and understanding can these patterns be broken, and only when there is justice and equality for all will we be able to heal the deep scars of trauma that have damaged men, women, and children since the founding of our country. We continue to fulfill our mission of ensuring families have the fundamental assets needed to thrive, as we as we work for a more equitable present and future for all.
