Children`s Hope Chest

in Non-Profits

The Children`s Hope Chest has just completed its second year of providing hope to children in need, children who face despair and suffering on a daily basis in the tri-state area. We create programs that encourage the participation of children in an effort to create social change. We offer hope to those in need by linking with established organizations that help families. Our organization is comprised of concerned individuals who wish to promote volunteerism and goodwill in order to lift despair. The Children`s Hope Chest partners with the following agencies to reach out to children who are suffering. Andrus Children`s Center: Provides assessment, treatment, education and preventative services for children who have or are at risk for developing behavioral health problems. Carver Center: mission is to provide educational programs and services to help at risk children maximize their potential for growth and self-sufficiency. Friends of Karen: Giving financial, emotional and advocacy support to families of children with life-threatening illnesses. My Sisters` Place: Offering shelter, education, and advocacy for battered women and their children. Neighbor to Neighbor: Providing essentials (i.e. food and clothing) to over 250 Fairfield County families each week. YMCA of Greater NY: Building strong kids, strong families and strong communities through the values of respect, honesty, responsibility and caring.  For more information on how to get involved please visit our website www.childrenshopechest.com or contact us at (914)696-1176.
