Client Emergency Fund

Client Emergency Fund

The Client Emergency Fund provides small-scale, quick donations directly to our clients in moments of crisis.

Year after year, our advocates observe the same issues coming up for our clients’ families. As children come out of foster care, we see parents struggle to fill their cabinets with food, stock up on diapers, and furnish their children’s room in preparation for their return. Many of these problems – the need for school supplies, baby formula and food, a child’s mattress, a reliable alarm clock, a winter coat, even the need for holiday gifts – can be resolved with small donations.

Throughout the year we host a series of fundraisers to raise money for these items through our Client Emergency Fund. Our events include: Back to Basics, Cash for Crayons, Celebration of Families, which honors parents who have been reunified with their children, and Home for the Holidays.
