About Become a Friend of Family Outreach of Amherst


For low-income families, sometimes a little can mean a lot. We hope you will consider becoming a Friend. Friendship is based simply on a willingness to receive periodic e-mails requesting assistance and a desire to stay informed. It can change lives–both yours and the people you help. To get started, simply send an e-mail message to Family Outreach of Amherst Office Manager, Rachel Condry, at

When faced with a crisis, just getting by can be overwhelming. Friends of Family Outreach assist in small ways that make a big difference.

Linked by e-mail, our Friends step in when an FOA caseworker discovers a need that cannot be met through regular channels. “They help us expand our budget and services so much,” says FOA Program Director Laura Reichsman. “I don’t know what we would do without them.”

Our Friends have helped by:

- providing snow boots to a young child so she could play outside during recess
- helping a single mother of four with her electric bill so she could buy groceries that month
- sponsoring a child for a week of camp so he could escape the worries of a difficult home life
- helping a homeless family move from a relative’s living room to an apartment of their own by contributing to the first month’s rent.
