Dear Friend,
Guardian House exists to protect children of high-conflict separation, divorce, and family violence, helping
parents break the cycles of abuse – a cause very dear to my son Tristan and me. We’ve shared the story of how
Guardian House guided our family in the past, and now, as co-chairs of the “Art of Healing” Dinner &
Silent Auction, we’re excited to extend an invitation to you. Tristan and I have been honored to be among the
many stories of healing at Guardian House. This year, we will share another:

“I’m not sure I can make a flower out of this, Dad. I wasn’t that great at it last time,” a
daughter tells her father as she picks up a strawberry. “That’s how we learn…we make
mistakes and then try again,” her dad says, encouraging her to carve a flower out of a
strawberry. “When I was in culinary training, the first time I tried to make a strawberry flower,
it was awful. I had to throw it away! But I kept trying and I finally got it right. You can, too.”

Guardian House fosters healing moments like this for hundreds of families each year. We see healing in this
single dad with a traumatic past, learning life-changing skills to become a better father and sharing vulnerable
moments with his children that repair and reinforce their bond. There’s healing for the kids who experience
dad’s growth as a parent and healing for the mom who leans on Guardian House to co-parent, mutually
advocating for their kids’ emotional health. Tristan and I were touched by this powerful story and would love
to share more of it with you at our first ever “Art of Healing” Dinner & Silent Auction held at The
Pavilion at Red Berry Estate on Thursday, May 21st.

Unfortunately, we see far too many news stories of violence resulting from escalated tensions during child
exchanges and unsupervised care. In high-conflict divorces, this escalation is often inevitable without
therapeutic intervention, but there’s hope. Healing is possible, as Guardian House proves every day.

For Tristan and me, healing came with the exceptional supervised visitation program that allowed Tristan to
visit his dad in a safe, supportive environment, right up until his dad’s sudden death. For other families, like
this one, healing continues through parenting classes and reunification counseling.

Your support and sponsorship at the event will continue our mission to impact thousands of lives and enrich
family relationships across our community. Please consider sponsoring a table or purchasing individual
tickets – your presence does make a difference – ensuring families, like ours, receive critical
transformational services that may otherwise be out of reach. We appreciate you and are tremendously
grateful for your support. We can’t wait to see you at the dinner!

Warmly,
Kristi & Tristan Ingram, Event Co-Chairs
