Hear about the positive impact our efforts make.

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.

Do you need more items for the rummage sale?

Are these things that you aren’t able to given to people for some reason or another?

Here's an update on the past few weeks.

The loss of two key team members within a four-week period was a hard hit, but our team is strong and resilient. We continue to push forward when faced with adversity and most important: we continue to stand by the families who need us most.

Remember the family of nine that lost everything in the fire? Our friends at Old Brick Furniture decided to jump onboard to help make sure this family has everything they need to start over again. Old Brick donated seven brand-new mattress sets, frames and sheet sets. Thanks to your generosity, we're taking care of the rest. The family has already picked up a few truckloads of aid, including another one today. There is still more to go. As they get settled, more aid will be available to them thanks to your support.

We have two new interns from Hudson Valley Community College and they are wonderful! The pair spent their first couple of weeks sorting clothing and getting familiar with non-profit operations. Now that they have that down, they can often be seen racing from car-to-car, working directly with families in crisis situations.

Parking was a bit of challenge at the crisis intervention center last week. That’s because 251 individuals were served in a four-day period. While we still have plenty of some things, we are dangerously low on others. Here's a list of our most urgent needs.

👕 Toilet Paper

👚 Paper Towels

👕 Bath Towels

👚 Hair Brushes

👕 Diapers (sizes 4-6)

👚 Pull-Ups (sizes 2T-5T)

👕 Children's Clothing (Sizes 12-20)

👚 Children's Pajamas (Sizes 12-20)

Things of My Very Own has the ability to purchase many items at a rate far below retail costs. For example: we are able to purchase food and many household cleaners for $0.12- $0.26 per pound! For this reason, the most cost effective way to help is to make a monetary donation. If you prefer to shop yourself, our donation drop-off hours are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9am-noon.

We thank you in advance for your support of children-in-crisis.
