You can also give to our current fundraiser – our 2022 Annual Appeal. 

The holidays can be a difficult time for the children we serve

It’s no fun to spend the holidays in a Residential treatment program even if this is the best place for a child to get the help they need. With your support, we will provide presents to dozens of children in our Residential Services as well as to low-income families in our Outpatient therapy programs who struggle with basic needs. We also collect and purchase other items such as arts and crafts, toys, school supplies, gift cards, etc. which can be used throughout the year when needs arise for children and families.

Below are the ways you can give during this holiday season and delivery details. If you’d like to make a cash donation, please scroll down to the donation form. Thank you for our support!
