Big News! 

After years of working as community partners, Advocacy Services for Kids (ASK) and Parent to Parent of SW MI (P2P) are planning to come together by merging into one organization with a greater capacity to serve families and their children who have developmental, mood, emotional or behavioral challenges.   Both agencies’ boards have signed a plan of merger to be effective October 1, 2017.  We are super excited to introduce our new organization, ASK Family Services! 

The missions of ASK and P2P are intertwined as both organizations work to engage and empower families and youth by sharing their own lived experiences and strengths. By merging, we hope that our community resources will be maximized and used more efficiently, allowing us to reach more families and youth.

Please join us to celebrate our merger at our open house on Thursday October 5th, 2017 from 4pm to 7pm, and at 6pm we unveil our new outside sign and logo!

Open house location is our main office at 445 West Michigan Ave, Kalamazoo, MI. 49007
