Teen and Family Services’ Spring Luncheon on Thursday, March 30th 2017 features special keynote speaker, D’Anne Burwell, author of Saving Jake: When Addiction Hits Home, which won the USA Best Book Award. 

"Our family has been infinitely blessed by each and every person who has touched our lives through the TAFS program. I hope that you will consider supporting this program, that is desperately needed in Austin, so that other youth can experience the strength, hope, friendships, and opportunity for a bright future that is offered to them in the TAFS program."

Peggy Robinson, Mother
