Gearing up for the New Year!

January 2009 will mark the beginning of our new Adopt-a-Caseworker program. This program has been in the "planning" stages for around 9 months, so you can imagine what a celebration it is for the program to finally be implemented. This means that both Caseworkers and Partner groups in the community will be trained and matched in January. Once matched, these partnerships can begin to provide much-needed resources for local abused & neglected children and their families. Many of the needs this program can fulfill are not being fulfilled by other local charities. With the economic decline and the loss of several jobs locally, increased needs are expected. Can you help?

If you are interested in partnering with a child protective Caseworker to support the needs of his/her caseload, please call 862-3586 and ask for Sondra.
