Meet The Neighbors
Release Date: 11/18/13

Over the last few months there has been some shuffling at, in, and around the building next door to us. A new organization has set up shop at 8 Thomas. As it turns out, the new occupant, Families Forward, is one of the finest neighbors we could ask for. So good in fact, we were moved to share a bit about them.

Established in 1984, Families Forward is a nonprofit organization that provides housing for families in crisis, and a good deal more. Beyond their Traditional Housing and Housing First programs (which supplied ninety-four families and over 300 children with a place to live in 2012), Families Forward supplies food to 450 low-income families every month through their Food Pantry program, and offers free Weekly Career Workshops to anyone interested.

In addition to the yearlong agenda mentioned above, Families Forward offers three seasonal initiatives: the Back-To-School Program, an end of the year Adopt-A-Family Program, and a Thanksgiving Program which is currently coming to a close. The Thanksgiving Program offers over 700 families the ingredients to a full Thanksgiving meal, allowing them to prepare, serve, and bond over a feast of their own. FUTEK is proud to be participating in this food drive with our new friends at Families Forward.

2013 is winding down. Winter is (sort of) moving over Southern California. We are, once again, reminded to be thankful for what we have and to give in celebration to one another. Then there are companies like Families Forward, which perpetuate generosity and hope for 365 days out of every year, without break, or signs of slowing down.

FUTEK has spent the last 25 years working with scientific minds the world over. Our sensors have been to space, the depths of the ocean, and almost everywhere in-between. We have intercontinental neighbors that are changing the world every single day. It is refreshing to meet our new neighbors, right next door, changing the world so close to home.

If you would like to get involved with Families Forward we encourage you to check out their website, There you will find more about the history of the company, avenues of volunteer work, and more on the sobering needs of children and families right here in Orange County.
