Campaign description

Ongoing financial support in preparation for emancipation and post discharge

Children’s Service Incorporated has a vision of safety, education, family and community service to support children and families in permanent homes, however, many children will “age out.” This means after a child turns 18, a population of children in the welfare system will leave without a family and minimal life skills to function as a productive member of their community and society as a whole. With your donation, together we help ease these concerns.

Where Will It Go?

The monies raised will go toward rents for apartments that house our young adult clients as they learn skills that will move them towards independence by providing an actual supervised living experience. This helps to foster life skills and educational/vocational training that helps achieve self-sufficiency at the time of emancipation. The agency will be able to provide financial support in preparation for emancipation and post discharge supports.

Donate as much as you can, $5, $10, $15 or $20 will help, but please help. Anything you donate will be deeply appreciated.

About Children’s Service Incorporated

CSI is a 129 year old agency, originally founded by Episcopalian nuns and Edith Wharton Dallas of St. Marks Episcopal Church to serve “colored” crippled and indigent children in 1887. Now, one of only a few historically “Black” agencies remaining in the nation, we serve a diverse population in need of help with temporary out-of-home placement, independence/life skills obtainment, educational assistance, behavioral health counseling and adoption services.
