Adopt a Family for Christmas!

merry christmas

It’s getting closer to Christmas! For most of us that means creating our Christmas wish lists and starting shopping for our friends and family. But for so many Raffa Clinic clients, Christmas is a difficult time. Many have been through difficult pregnancy decisions, new babies, and rebuilding lives after turmoil.

Our Raffa Clinic staff has chosen a few of our families that we have had the blessing of working with this past year and we have asked them if they need some extra blessing this year for Christmas. Some said they were good but others said they would be grateful for the help.

We have created our Adopt A Family Christmas Tree at our Greenville Clinic. When you agree to adopt a family, you are agreeing to purchase items from their wish list (please keep in mind these may be the only gifts the child/mom receive). You are welcome to adopt more than one if you are financially able.

For more information about our families and to see how you can bless a family, click here to go to our Adopt A Family Page. 

Thank you for all you do to support Raffa Clinic!

Bunco for Babies!

Facebook Bunco Logo.Sponsor logo

We have gone Bunco for Babies and invite you to join us!

Raffa Clinic is proud to present our first annual Bunco for Babies fundraiser on Thursday, June 13, 2019 sponsored by Capital Title.

Funds raised from the event will support the Raffa Clinic of Hunt County as we continue to serve women and families in our community by educating, equipping, and encouraging expectant and parenting families.

The fast-paced game of Bunco is played with a set of 3 dice as 4 players at each table attempt to roll as many of the target number as possible each round. There are six rounds per game with each game lasting 35-40 minutes. Our event will hold two games of play.

There will be plenty of door prizes, awards for our winners, and additional opportunities to financially support the ministry during the “warm-up” time (food & photos) from 5:30-6:45pm. Official game play begins at 7:00pm sharp.

“Our hope for this event is to provide a safe, clean, and fun night for our community while raising awareness and support for the Raffa Clinic,” said Threesa Sadler, Executive Director.

Raffa Clinic would like to thank the following sponsors for their support: Presenting Sponsor, Capital Title; Ken & Donna Stroud, Color Sponsors; Robert & Leanne Bledsoe at Farmers Insurance, Tray Sponsor; and Greenville Automatic Gas, Table Sponsor.

Additional Sponsorship opportunities are available. To find out more information see Bunco sponsor levels.2019 and complete our SPONSORSHIP AGREEMENT.2019 to join our team of sponsors.

If you would more information about volunteering with us, please complete the information below and we will be in contact with you soon!

Raffa Clinic has continued to grow over the previous year and with our new expansion into Quinlan, new volunteer opportunities have risen. There are MANY different ways to serve at Raffa Clinic and NEW volunteer roles and times available. If you work 9-5 or have kids with you during the day, don’t let that hinder you. We now have evening volunteer opportunities available!

Client Advocates:  Do you have a heart for helping others? Then this volunteer position is for you. Client Advocates meet directly with our clients and help with their intake process and discuss their pregnancy options with them. You are truly their advocate and help them look at their situation and give them information about all of the options available to them.

Mentors: Do you feel called to pour into the life of someone else through mentorship? Then this is the role for you. We need men and women to come alongside and mentor our clients in the areas of parenting, relationships and life skills. This is a wonderful opportunity for discipleship!

Receptionist: This position is for the people person. Our receptionists are often the first person our clients talk to when they call or walk into our clinic. As a receptionist, you will greet clients, assist with client paperwork and answer phone calls.

Teachers: For those called to teach, we are always looking for people willing to facilitate our education classes. So many of our clients that choose to parent their children ask us for help in getting ready to have their child or help with parenting and relationship issues once their child has been born. As a volunteer teacher, you would be facilitating our Earn While You Learn program that covers topics dealing with pregnancy, parenting, household and money management, relationships and many other topics. Our class material is already prepared, you simply facilitate the class and the discussion. This is a great opportunity to educate a new generation of parents in our community.

Nurses: Our nurses have the opportunity to meet with our clients and perform their pregnancy tests and sonograms. You will discuss prenatal development and prenatal care. Our nurses often have the unique opportunity to be the first person to show our clients their new baby during their sonogram. Raffa Clinic provides training in limited obstetrical sonography for our volunteer nurses who qualify for the training. This is a unique opportunity to use your nursing skills in a new way.

Facilities: Raffa Clinic often has odd jobs that need attention. Many times these include some light painting, small repair, or other small tasks around the clinic. If you are skilled in a specific area and are willing to lend your services, please contact us and let us know. We will keep an ongoing list of facility helpers and contact you if a need arises.

Community Vision Casting for Hunt County

 

Raffa Clinic has secured a community wide grant to help educate parents on how to raise healthy, caring, and responsible kids.  The Raising Highly Capable Kids program is a 13 week parent program based on the 40 Development Assets, which are essential building blocks that every child needs to be more successful.  Parents will learn to increase their knowledge of these assets and gain a skill set to strengthen their children in key areas such as:  Positive Identity, Social Competence, Setting Boundaries and Expectations, Constructive use of Time, Commitment to Learning, and Positive Values.  This program has the potential to help parents teach their kids to become more resilient as well as improve their GPA.  We believe this program can benefit our community and we want to open this offer to everyone serving in our helping organizations.  A program representative will share:

  • An overview of the program
  • Explanation and sampling of curriculum
  • Effectiveness and impact of program
  • What to expect
  • How your organization can benefit

For more information on the Capable Kids program visit www.capablekids.com

2015 Annual Fundraising Banquet Sponsor Opportunities

WebGraphic

On October 8, 2015, the Raffa Clinic will be holding its Annual Fundraising Banquet: “LIFE: Remembered.”

We will be celebrating 15 years of ministry in Hunt County. We are asking you for your corporate or individual support of our 2015 Banquet to be held at the Texas A&M UniversityCommerce banquet facilities. Our prayer is that you will sponsor this event so that the financial needs will be met to continue and expand this vital ministry.

Why sponsor the 2015 “LIFE: Remembered” Fundraising Banquet?

By sponsoring, you are allowing us to expose new people to Raffa Clinic who will contribute their time and financial support. Our supporters have made it possible for us to provide 1,732 client visits at our Greenville and Commerce clinics in 2014. Our Quinlan clinic opened in July 2015 to increase our availability to patients. Your contribution positively impacts Hunt County by providing free Pregnancy Testing, Ultrasounds and comprehensive Pregnancy and Parenting Education to those seeking skills and tools to better their family’s future. We are counting on you and your support this year.

The 2014 Fundraising Banquet produced phenomenal results with 312 guests and $66,020 in gifts. For every $1 given to sponsor the event, we received more than $5.50 in giving at the banquet. For 2015 the expenses will be approximately $15,000. Like last year, it is our desire to raise the $15,000 from sponsors beforehand so that every penny received that night will directly touch lives in our community. We would ask you to prayerfully consider the included Sponsor Packages and choose one for this year’s event.

As you can see from the packages available Sponsor Packages, we are offering great ways to promote your business. It is our desire to help promote those businesses that support Raffa Clinic. If you have questions about the different sponsor packages, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to partnering with you to further the work of Raffa Clinic as well as benefit you.

Thank you,

Threesa Sadler

Executive Director
