Our Mission:

Children in Crisis is a local, non-profit charity committed to “Establishing homes and providing hope” for the abused, neglected and abandoned children of our community. The Children’s Neighborhood provides an emergency shelter for young children and family foster homes that augment the shortage of foster homes available in our community.

About CIC:

Children in Crisis, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of caring people working together to provide homes and keep brothers and sisters together.  We give a home to the abused, neglected, and a abandoned children of our community.

There is a severe shortage of foster homes in our community.  There are over 1400 foster children per year in Circuit 1 that need a home and there are only 300 Community Foster Homes with a total of 675 beds.

Before Children in Crisis, there was no emergency shelter in Circuit 1 for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice.  Our children in a nurturing home in a local neighborhood environment.

Without CIC many foster children would be moved from home to home- some as many as ten times per year.  Though, the Children’s Neighborhood provides a home and hope to about 100 children each year.

Before CIC, 45% of foster children we were separated from their siblings due to foster home shortages.  At The Children’s Neighborhood, sibling separation is minimized and it is our priority to keep brothers and sisters together.

As we continue to grow, your help and support are more critical than ever!  Your commitment to helping us sustain operations of the Children’s Neighborhood is our most urgent need.  Together, we are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.  Please help us continue our wonderful mission by opening your hearts and giving.
