It Only Takes One Person to Make a Difference This Holiday Season
This holiday season, children and families experiencing trauma and crisis feel isolated and alone. When they look around their classroom or neighborhood they see others that appear to have everything they need or want. In this season, basic needs and comforts such as food, a change of clothes, or a comforting item such as a blanket may be all that a child asks for from Santa.
Every day at Children's Safe Harbor a little girl may be getting a pediatric sexual assault examination at our center and require a change of clothes. A teenage boy may be disclosing years of physical abuse, and ask for a snack and water to help him continue to share his life story. Children in our waiting rooms often ask for more than one snack because they are hungry and to bring home toys from our waiting area to fill the needs in their own home.
All of the services offered at Children's Safe Harbor are provided at no cost to the family. As a non-profit, Children's Safe Harbor relies on community donations to be able to provide food, clothes and other necessary items to these families while they are receiving our unique advocacy services.
