Guardian Parent

Guardian Parents are valued members of Cunningham’s family who help us look after the needs of our kids by making a commitment to provide financial support on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Their reliable support helps us to make up the difference between the actual cost of care for a child and the amount that we are reimbursed from referring resources- a cost of $36 per day, per client. 

Our Guardian Parents are a gift to us and our youth! See our list of FY14 Guardian Parents

Become a Guardian Parent!

When you commit to give, you are making it possible for our youth to participate in field trips, summer camps, recreational activities, special therapies and many other enriching experiences. These opportunities often provide breakthrough moments for our kids as they learn new skills and move toward healing. Because of your support, Cunningham can go above and beyond to bring hope to our youth.

As a Guardian Parent you have choices!

You choose the amount – whatever meets your budget.
 
You choose how often you give – monthly, quarterly, or annually. We will graciously understand and respect your decision to change or cancel your commitment at any time.
