Joy Ammerman is a long-time resident of Montgomery County where she raised her three children and taught school. She manages the Ammerman Family Foundation to give back to the community that has been so good to her family.
In deciding what organizations to support Joy often looks to her children for suggestions. Her daughter-in-law attended our Zoom Workout fundraiser and told Joy about “this organization that provides money to youth aging out of foster care.” She chose to make a generous contribution earmarked to helping these young adults. With Joy’s gift, we will have supported fifteen foster youth who are aging out by paying for furnishings, professional work clothes, tuition, loan repayment, auto expenses, transportation, groceries, computers, and more.
Joy feels rewarded by the thought that her contribution will make a difference right here in Montgomery County. She hopes through her gift and the example she set that someday the young adults she is supporting will be able to give back as well. (Thank you, Joy!)
Without you, our donors, we could not continue to help the children and young adults who continue to face great difficulties as they try to overcome the trauma from child abuse and neglect. So please, now more than ever, help us help our community.
