Our Connection:

Family Discretionary Grant. In 2017, the Skees Family lost one of its members to suicide. We came to see first hand how traumatic this can be and how difficult depression can be for those suffering from it. We wanted to do what we could to help others who are suffering in hopes of preventing more sorrow and loss.
