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.

Fun Fact 2: We wear costumes and play games at the crisis intervention center frequently. Each costume and game aligns with a program theme. Our programs have both psychological and educational components to help children through their healing process. For many of the children we serve, it is the first time they have had the opportunity to play and be silly, without fear of being harmed.

Earlier in the year, children came in for services and were greeted by team members dressed as bees. As they were led to the program room, they journeyed through a Spring-like hallway lined with pop-out bee hives. Each cell contained a prize. The program was a life lesson about how we can help one another and ourselves through our healing process. The costumes and games offered unpredictable moments of joy for those we serve- it was also a chance to be kids.

So when you visit our wishlist, don’t be surprised when you see unique items such as prize eggs when Easter has passed. Earlier in the year, a ream of neon green paper helped us transform our hallways into a valley for butterflies. We dressed the part for that too. πŸ™‚
