2024 Rocket Ball: A Blueprint for Hope

You made our 2024 Rocket Ball an evening full of hope and generosity. Together we raised over $575,000 (and counting) to advance safer, healthier relationships for those we serve!

Your support enables FamilyForward’s highly skilled staff to create partnerships with parents – and the many other people who care for kids – so they can meet children where they are, understand their needs, and support them on their journey to healing. The FamilyForward team is creating a Blueprint For Hope for children and families, and by supporting FamilyForward, you are too.

Save the date! Next year’s Rocket Ball is February 8th, 2025!

At The Rocket Ball, we awarded TriZetto Provider Solutions, a Cognizant Company, the Herman T. and Phenie R. Pott Child Advocacy Award. This award is given annually to an individual or group that exemplifies the spirit of the Pott family’s commitment to helping children.

For nearly two decades, TriZetto has been a dedicated supporter, contributing their time, resources, and expertise to make a meaningful difference.
