Remember When – Rodney B. Wilson and friend


Letters – Thanks to many from many

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to donate to Alan’s fundraiser. Including direct donations from family, we were able to reach our goal. We all thought we’d have longer with him. He is loved and missed.

I attended the virtual School Board meeting tonight and the bid from Jeff Deehan, Developer won the bid for RBW High School. In my opinion that was the right decision for the school and our community.

Many thanks to the School Board and all involved on their decision.

Our world today has so, so many needs. People who are unemployed or furloughed, food uncertainty, ability to pay bills, unknown timelines for workplaces, and social distancing to keep our loved ones safe.

We participated in last week’s Giving Tuesday as our agency balances our needs to serve Clinton County’s abused and neglected children. In a time with SO many needs thank YOU for your financial support which enables us to serve Clinton County. What does your financial gift support?

* Children in foster care are appointed to a CASA who remains in contact through technology and postal mail. In-person visits are temporarily suspended for safety, but the need for the consistancy for the children is more apparent now than every before.

* CASA Advocates continue to ensure the needs of children and the foster care experience is reported to the court.

* Children and youth who need to have a forensic interview are still able to share their story of abuse at our CAC building–with many, many safety precautions.

* Non-offending caregivers and children who we serve at our CAC continue to receive support through their Family Advocate.

* Staff remain able to work remotely to ensure our essential services continue for our community.

* We continue to work with our amazing professional partners to ensure children’s needs are met.

We could not do this without YOU.

We know the landscape has changed for our community and children. We know not all kiddos are safe in their homes. We know teachers and other mandated reporters have less eyes on children. We know and are planning for an increase in children and youth who will need us. We need your financial support to ensure all children have a voice and access to healing support.

Thank You. We wish you and your family peace and health! Stay Home and Stay Safe!
