Help a Child in Need

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.

Help Us to Reach Our Urgent Fundraising Goal!

Our Fundraising Goal: $20,000 for our Rooftop Heating Unit

One of the organization’s rooftop heating units is in desperate need of replacement.

Rooftop units typically last 10-15 years, ours is over 25 years old and was recently hit by lightning.

PMA Mechanical generously worked on the unit to keep it running for the next couple of months, but the unit is in desperate need of replacement. The cost of a replacement unit, plus the crane to get it on top of the roof, is estimated to be approximately $20,000.

Please, help us avoid future loss by contributing toward the cost of a new rooftop unit.

The Founder’s Story

Thank you to the individuals who contributed food and other supplies to the very sweet grandmother in family #134A19. She came in today to retrieve her items and was moved to tears from the generosity of others. It is said that you don't truly appreciate the value of food until you have to go without, and this woman has gone without too many times.

On behalf of this family and the thousands of other children in crisis that we serve each year, we thank you for helping us prove to these children and families that they deserve the very best in life.

Looks like just a can of Kool-Aid doesn’t it? It’s not, it’s a generous gift from a struggling grandmother we had the pleasure of serving this morning. She told one of our staff members that she recognizes all we have done for her grandchildren. She knows that this staff member has children of her own and wanted to give them a gift. So yes, it looks like just a can of Kool-Aid, but in reality, it represents so much more. ... See MoreSee Less

Several months ago, a young grandmother came to the center after unexpectedly receiving custody of her grandson. The news was sudden but it also came at a time when she was undergoing cancer treatment. The boy came with nothing. We provided the boy with clothing, outerwear, undergarments, boots, personal hygiene supplies, bedding, school supplies and more.

This morning the grandmother stopped in to once again thank us for the aid that we provided. Best of all, was the news she came in with. She's now in remission!

We are almost completely out of several hair care and personal hygiene products.

Hairbrushes- 100% Depleted
Conditioner- 100% Depleted
Hair Bands- Dangerously Low
Woman’s Deodorant- 100% Depleted
Towels & Washcloths- Low

As a non-profit organization we have the ability to purchase many of these items at a fraction of retail prices. One of our contracted venders is having a sale!

We can purchase packages of 48 hairbrushes for $57.50 per order and 60 packages of hair elastics for $46.80 but we halve to act now. Once they are out of stock, the deal is gone.

You can make a donation by clicking the link below. If you prefer to do the shopping yourself, you can shop on Amazon and have items shipped directly to us. www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1MZILKZFBBTOK

Let’s see how many lives we can impact today.
