Graham SLAM 2019

Benefiting Idaho Parents Unlimited and the Idaho Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health

In 2019, the Foundation will continue its fundraising efforts through the Graham Slam event in their hometown of Boise, ID. The Boise community has been Graham and Ruby's home since they met at Boise State University, and where they have built their lives and family over the past decade.

The Graham and Ruby DeLaet Foundation Vision:  

Our vision is to foster an environment where children and families that are affected by emotional, behavioural, or mental illnesses are supported, not only in their home, but also in their workplaces, schools, and communities.

Our aim is to help put an end to mental health stigmas through promoting open conversations, where children feel safe to discuss their struggles and feel supported.

In addition, we hope to provide equal opportunity for junior golfers at all stages. We will strive to ensure that no golfer is held back due to lack of funds or resources.

Donate to Idaho Parents Unlimited! 

IPUL's limited funding and resources allows us to support families who have children and youth with disabilities and complex health conditions throughout the state of Idaho.  
 
Our programs are historically underfunded, and we are always grateful for individual contributions that support us in our efforts to meet the needs of more families and youth.  
 
An example of a program with the greatest need is our Work of Art program.  With Work of Art, IPUL partners with local artists and companies to provide paid work experience for students with disabilities who are transitioning from school to the workplace.  
 
Your contribution will ensure young people with disabilities will have access to meaningful employment skill development, leading to happy, productive, and independent lives.  
 
Your individual contribution is a direct investment in Idaho's families. 
 

Idaho Parents Unlimited's Social Media Policy

 
Hello friends,
 
IPUL is in the process of updating our social media policies as more and more messages are coming to our organization via digital means. Unfortunately, we find the Facebook inbox and notifications to be somewhat unreliable. This is especially true when there is more than one person serving as a page administrator. Therefore, if you send a message to our FB inbox, you will receive an automatic reply directing you to our website intake form or phone number. We'll do our best to check for messages each day, but we much prefer to use our systems that are currently in place to provide appropriate assistance. 
 
That said, we have also developed new policies regarding staff and their personal FB pages as well as other social media sites - including personal cell phones (text messaging). Frequently, our staff are tagged in posts on groups and expected to respond (or they feel obligated) after regular business hours. They also receive private instant messages via this technology as well.
 
All staff have been instructed to respond to work-related messages only during our regular business hours (Monday-Friday; 9:00-5:00) or during their individually scheduled hours when they are each working using company equipment and resources only.  If you contact employees with their personal messaging accounts, they are instructed to not respond, other than to direct you to our official channels.  

We hope this will help us to be consistent in providing assistance as well as ensuring messages don't fall through the cracks. Thanks for understanding!
 
~Angela Lindig, Executive Director
