May is National Foster Care Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the many people that open their hearts when a young person is in need of a stable home and emotional support during a family crisis. It’s also a time to acknowledge that there are approximately 400,000 children and youth in foster care on any given day—and that there is always a need for new foster parents who want to change the lives of young people.
Last Thursday the Associate's Council and their many guests traveled down the rabbit hole and up to the Manhattan Penthouse for "Wonderland", an unforgettable cocktail party in support of The Children’s Aid foster care program.
On Wednesday, The Children’s Aid Society hosted its 13th Annual Children’s Art Show at the Boricua College Art Gallery in Washington Heights. The wet weather didn’t deter the dozens of children, families and friends excited to view approximately 150 pieces of curated and professionally framed artwork that dressed the walls of the gallery.
One of highlights of the annual spring fête thrown by The Associates Council of The Children’s Aid Society is the spectacular raffle. Unlike normal raffles, you can pledge your tickets towards the prize of your choosing in distinct tiers. This year we have introduced a new tier!
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and at the Children’s Aid Society ensuring that a child grows up happy, healthy, and safe is a large part of the work we do every day. We do this through programs that ensure children have a safe place to live, that the home is free from violence and that children are given the supports they need to thrive, even when their parents are unable to provide it.
