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.

Things of My Very Own

Things of My Very Own, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that provides crisis intervention services and programs to children in emergency situations, specifically, those who have experienced extensive abuse or neglect.

It’s only Socktober but our team is already gearing up for our Sponsor-a-Child in Crisis Campaign. We are still working on the logistics, but you can expect Wish Tags to be available at a business near you by mid-November.

Right now we are contacting current clients to update children’s wishes and needs. If you are a current client, PLEASE be sure to answer calls from blocked numbers. Phone calls are being made each day between 8am-8pm. Other referrals for holiday assistance are being reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Stay tuned for more information in the weeks ahead!

I'm interested in sponsoring Family #4622020.

How do I get wish tags for my organization?

Kristin Schultz Cornell is the college still participating? This was one of my favorite events. We collected so much that one year.

How do you go about getting a referral to get my family sponsored with this year going the way things are losing my job and just making ends

I get wish tag from Slice pizza in Glenville. They're collecting socks now. Slice Does so much for the community.

Wish tags are coming! Woohoo!!

I know it sounds trivial, but is there any way you can add a spot for each childs favorite color this year? Not all girls like “girl” colors and same for boys 😬

Do you have an amazon wish list or can you for some kids? I am out of state but would like to sponsor.

Caitlin !! We should suggest this org for our holiday adoptions!!!

Will be watching

How can I get tags?
