Dear Members, Gratitude

Our CAMFT community is heartbroken over the tragic events affecting Californians. From the tragedy of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks to the devastating wildfires in the Butte, Los Angeles, and Ventura counties, we hope that our colleagues and loved ones are safe, and send our love to those impacted. We are thankful for the first responders who are offering tremendous support to these communities.

Many members have asked how they can help support their communities. CAMFT has partnered with Give an Hour to harness the skills, expertise, and generosity of volunteers to provide services to those in need.

Even in the midst of crisis, one can reflect on this season of Thanksgiving. CAMFT staff is completing a #GratitudeChallenge to reflect on what we are grateful for each day. With the spirit of this gratitude challenge, I would like to thank you, CAMFT members, for being valuable members of CAMFT and for the important work you do every day to improve people’s lives. I hope you will make time to reflect on what you are thankful for this year.
