The First Judicial Circuit Law Enforcement Association presented a check for $1,000 to Children In Crisis Inc. The funds will be used to purchase computer and educational equipment for at risk children living at the CIC Neighborhood.
Ken Hair, CIC President & CEO commented, “The donation was truly a blessing and came at a perfect time. We provide a home to about 100 children every year and most are behind in school when they arrive. This donation will be an enormous help with our tutoring and educational programs to get our kids back on track.”
Children in Crisis is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), charity of caring people that are passionate about helping with the severe shortage of foster homes in our community. The CIC Neighborhood provides an emergency shelter for children that are removed from an unsafe environment on short notice and homes to help with the foster home shortage. Since the opening, over 988 children have been given a home, food, clothing and love. Additionally, all of our brother and sister family sibling groups have been kept together.
