Does state funding pay for entertainment and food at The Annual Family Cafe?
No. All money from the State goes directly to appropriate costs, including financial support, audio visual support for presenters and keynote speakers, and printing and conference materials. Entertainment is provided in-kind by corporate partners like WellCare as well as partner non-profits such as Pyramid, VSA Arts, FRIENDS Chorus and Special Kids Dance Academy.
In all areas, The Family Café stringently adheres to state procurement rules, and follows the appropriate fiscal procedures set forth by participating State Agencies. Our organization is deeply committed to extracting the greatest possible value from every dollar in its budget, both public and private, for the sake of the families we serve.
