My stake calling is multi-faceted and awesome. I am always in awe of the strength of the people with whom I am called to serve with and for. Basically, I am a liason for members of our church for LDS Family Services. Let me know if there is something I can help you with or if I can answer any of your questions.
Birth Parent Services
For women who find themselves pregnant and unmarried, LDSFS offers a way to make an informed decision regarding the future of their unborn child. There is a support group that meets on Wednesdays at the Tempe office from 6-8pm. If you or someone you love is in this situation, please come and see what your options are and let us support you. Check out this link for more information.

Addiction Recovery Program
You would be surprised at the number of programs available for those who suffer from all types of addiction: food, gambling, alcohol, drugs, pornography. This link will get you to information on where recovery groups are located. There is also a link to download the recovery manual that is based on the 12 step recovery program but includes gospel principles and action steps to help you in your recovery. I have attended several meetings for myself and the power in those meetings is invaluable.
LDSFS offers counseling or can refer you to a counselor or service to meet your specific needs. Talk to your Bishop or call LDSFS.
