Kids in Crisis receives competitive grant

Kids in Crisis has been helping the community for more than 20 decades and, with its recent $10,000 grant, can continue its legacy of dedicated service.

The organization is the only local free, round-the-clock crisis counseling center and emergency shelter. When home is not a safe or appropriate place for children to stay, kids in need are welcomed into the Safe Haven for Kids program, which shelters up to 20 children, ages newborn to age 17-years-old, at the Kids in Crisis campus in Cos Cob.

Here, these children receive intensive psychological and therapeutic individual and group counseling, comprehensive medical care provided by a full-time nurse practitioner, and in-depth educational support all amidst a supportive family-like environment. The Safe Haven for Kids program is the only one of its kind in the state of Connecticut.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Fairfield County Community Foundation, Kids in Crisis can continue to fund the Safe Haven for Kids program.

“We are deeply grateful to the Fairfield County Community Foundation for its ongoing support,” said Shari Shapiro, executive director of Kids in Crisis. “Together, we can continue providing families in our area with the care and services they so desperately need.”
