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 Reach Our Fundraising Goal!

Our 2018 Goal: $350,000

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 placed in the care of strangers has been described by many as being more traumatizing than the abuse itself. Legally a child must have their own bed, warm blankets, clothing, hygiene products and an adequate supply of food to remain with their non-abusive family members and out of the foster care system.

Please help us to ensure that these children are given everything they need from the first moment on. Help us to ensure that these children know that what they have endured, does not define who they grow up to be.

We did it! We served 156 children in crisis in a four-hour period!

A special thanks to all of the AMAZING employees and volunteers that stayed late to make it happen.

Our part-time employees: Faith, Danielle, Amifika and Beth have been volunteering up to 20 hours past their scheduled times, spending every minute possible, working to change the lives of others.

Mike & Meg Trimarchi, Brian, Ret. Lieutenant Kwak and Lieutenant Graniero have each volunteered up to 40 hours per week, DETERMINED to change the lives of the children that we serve. Thanks to each of you, these children are still safe with their non-abusive family members, and have been able to avoid a Child Protective Services intervention.

Great job everyone!
