“You are Loved” Community Event

Posted on February 8, 2017 at 8:15 AM by Communications Department

The Catalyst Effect and the Newport News Department of Human Services present “You are Loved! – We can Show You Better than We can Tell You” on Friday, February 17, from 6 – 8:30 PM. Held at South Morrison Family Education Center, the event encourages and supports families that have lost loved ones to violent crimes in 2015 or 2016.

Guests can interact with featured speakers, have access URloved_SCVto community resources and enjoy entertainment, door prizes and light snacks. Teens from The Catalyst Effect’s IMPACT youth leadership mentoring program are helping plan and implement the event, highlighting the positive impact that young people have in Newport News!

Community members will have the opportunity to nominate families who have experienced violence to be encouraged and recognized. They will receive a certificate or plaque with the image of their loved one, and a community care package of items. Nominations can be made at the Catalyst Effect website.

To partner with the event call 757-550-0461 or email catalysteffect4u@gmail.com .
