This year we invite you to GIVE JOY the youth and families in your community. The holiday season can often be difficult for our kids in foster care and independent living. With your help we can show them the true Christmas spirit in the upcoming months.
Over the years we have also extended the opportunity to Adopt a Family for the season with our Home-Based Services program. These families have a child receiving mental health services with CHOICES. We currently can only provide these services to those that are enrolled on Medicaid. Many of the families will not have a Christmas celebration without your help! We believe every child should feel the magic and JOY of the season.
You have always been generous to our youth in need throughout the year. When it comes to helping we truly believe there is something for everyone! Whether you can donate $20 or $500 it all goes directly to fund our Christmas efforts.
Check out all the ways you can help kids in foster care and independent living, and our families receiving home-based services.
