Support Children’s Home Society By Joining #GivingTuesday Global Day of Giving
November 18, 2021 – Greensboro, NC – Children’s Home Society of NC (CHS) responds to meet the needs of children and families in North Carolina each and every day, but particularly at times when the need is greatest. Today our children and families need your help more than ever, and #GivingTuesday gives you the opportunity to do so.
#GivingTuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of generosity and is celebrated this year on November 30. #GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea – a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or a stranger, being there for people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
Children’s Home Society works diligently to help parents create a safe, positive setting for children to grow and thrive, and to preserve families so that children do not enter the foster care system. However, when it does become necessary to remove children from their families, CHS is there to help provide them with a healthy family setting through foster care, and reunification or adoption.
In addition, we provide a broad spectrum of programs including post adoption services, parenting education, male responsibility and teen pregnancy prevention, and youth-led support and advocacy for youth in foster care.
Your support through #GivingTuesday could have the following impact:
- $120 – can help a child through the adjustment period with a new family through trauma responsive therapy.
- $50 – can help deliver parenting education to a struggling parent.
- $25 – can provide a family taking in a child in foster care with a few immediate essentials like diapers and formula.
- $10 – a recurring monthly gift can cover the costs of training and licensing foster families.
Last year, CHS served more than 23,000 North Carolina children and families. This included providing family preservation services to over 1,000 youth and creating a safe haven for nearly 1,100 children with foster care families. Children’s Home Society has celebrated more than 16,000 adoptions since 1902. With over 12,000 children in foster care in our state, and 450-plus aging out each year, we continue to work tirelessly in our mission to promote the right of every child to a permanent, safe, and loving family.
