Helping Children in Crisis

Things of My Very Own, Inc. provides crisis intervention services to children impacted by extensive abuse and/or neglect.

Services are also available to children who are, solely due to the lack of items necessary for sustainability, at risk of a Child Protective Services intervention.

Our goal is to keep children together with non-abusive family members, and out of the foster care system, whenever possible.

Brand New Mattresses for Children in Crisis

$2,245 of $7,000 raised

When a child leaves an abusive situation the transition is often sudden and unexpected. It is not uncommon for children to leave an abusive situation wearing nothing more than a sheet. The trauma that can come from being removed from your family while nearly nude and then then placed in the care of strangers has been described by many, as being more traumatizing than the abuse itself. Legally a child must have a bed of their own in order to remain with their non-abusive family members. We are 100% out of mattresses. We have the ability to purchase 126 brand new Tempur-Pedic Mattresses for $7,000. The mattresses are bed bug resistant and hypoallergenic. Your donation will help children in crisis remain with their non-abusive family members and out of the foster care system whenever possible.
