Kids in Crisis of Greenwich was recently awarded a $7,000 grant from the People’s United Community Foundation of People’s United Bank.

The funding will contribute towards educational services provided to each child in the Kids in Crisis shelters.

These services include several components: an educational assessment, the development and maintenance of an academic student profile, tutoring, school transition guidance, transportation to and from school, after-school activities, and the facilitation of regular communication among all professionals serving each child.

“We are so delighted to have People’s United partnering with us again this year,” said Shari Shapiro, executive director of Kids in Crisis. “Kids in Crisis relies on community supporters such as People’s United, who understand that there are many children with critical needs right in our backyards, whose lives are changed for the better, every day, with the quality services we provide.”

Kids in Crisis safeguards kids of all ages, from infants to teens, from abuse and family crisis.

Its free and confidential crisis intervention services, counseling, emergency shelters, advocacy, and prevention programs are available round-the-clock throughout Connecticut.

“Kids in Crisis plays a critical role in helping to stabilize children who are going through an extremely difficult time in their lives,” said Karen Galbo, marketing, public and community relations director for People’s United Community Foundation.

The organization seeks to ensure that each child is able to lead a healthy lifestyle, with uncompromised opportunities to attend school regularly, focus on scholastic and extra-curricular endeavors, and ultimately, achieve social, emotional and academic success.
