The B.I.L.Y. Annual Fundraiser Was Awesome!

B.I.L.Y.'s Stacy Wattles Memorial Poker Tournament was a huge success! This fundraiser supports Because I Love You all year, and it was a hit! The Hannah Rose Foundation at will receive a portion of the proceeds, and the rest will go toward supporting the B.I.L.Y. Communication Workshop and the Parent and Youth Support Groups. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped make it such a successful event! We also want to give a a big THANK YOU to all of our Sponsors for their support of B.I.L.Y.

Free Support Group Meetings

"When raising children," Dennis says, "pain is inevitable, but the suffering is optional." B.I.L.Y. meetings are a place to talk with other parents who listen without judgment or blame. There are no membership requirements or dues, and we are open to the public. Find a Parent Support Group or Youth Support Group location near you.
