Over The Edge

Are you ready to go Over the Edge for Family Services?

On October 10th, 90+ rappelers will step off the edge and rappel eight stories down the brick façade of People’s Natural Gas Field to support Family Services Incorporated.

Family Services Incorporated is the leading agency in Blair County providing vital lifelines such as shelters, violence prevention services, supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities, counseling for victims of crime, children’s advocacy and programs for at risk youth. In tune with our mission of providing resources to build healthier relationships and promote personal growth, agency programs assisted over 4,600 individuals during the last fiscal year. That’s 4,600 friends, family members, neighbors, colleagues, and students right here in our community.

Funding for these crucial programs continues to decline, making it essential for community members like you to help support our mission. In order to continue to provide quality services, Family Services is committed to hosting community fundraising events throughout Blair County.

Family Services is partnering with the Altoona Curve & Over the Edge to host a monumental fundraising opportunity in Blair County. A unique event that is sure to draw a crowd, receive media attention and bring fun and adventure back to fundraising. Over the Edge has partnered with more than 1,000 nonprofit agencies to raise over $100 million.
