Children's Home - Hillsborough Kinship Mtg

  • May 23, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

People have always cared for their relatives' children; however, most have done so with little formal help. Lack of assistance may lead to family stress that impacts the entire family. The Kinship Care program at The Children's Home is intended to provide support to relative caregivers by helping families access necessary services, expanding family support systems, and ultimately reducing stress to promote family stability.

How we will LEND A HAND

This is the monthly support group meeting to offer information, education and support for relative caregivers. We have been asked again to help serve dinner then entertain the children while their family members are attending the meetings.

We always have a great time at the Kinship events. The Children's Home, the families, and especially the children greatly appreciate our help and the fun things we bring for them!

Schedule:

6pm - 8pm - Please be flexible if they are not there when you first arrive, you can call the number provided to find out where to go or just wait a little while.

Other Important Information:

Unfortunately children are not allowed to participate in this event (per The Children's Home).

Additional information about Lend a Hand events, such as RSVPing, bringing guests, waiting lists, and last-minute dropouts is located on the 'About' page, please familiarize yourself with our current policies and procedures:

Join us and open your heart to LEND A HAND!

Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization. Last-minute drop-outs are difficult to replace and reflect badly on our organization.


How 'The Children's Home' benefits our community

The Children's Home provides a safe haven for children who have suffered abuse, neglect or abandonment. Children need love. Families need security. That's why they are charged with being the source of strength and opportunity for children and families. Through their nationally recognized residential treatment program to their Family Support and Resource Centers, they have impacted the lives of many who rely on support and care during times of uncertainty. Over the years, they have helped more than 6,000 children realize their dream of a family, and they have cared for more than 25,000 children in the community.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
