The recent news about the unaccompanied minors and children being separated from their parents at the border has sparked a lot of conversation for many of us.
We have heard stories from many of our donors and community members about their journeys and the journeys of their grandparents and parents who came to the United States simply to find a better life, or made a move from one state to another in search of that same better life.
We want to let you know that we continue to reunite children separated from their families. With your help, reuniting and strengthening or creating new families is what Abbott House has been doing for 54 years, and it is our mission to stay committed to caring for not only the separated children but also the unaccompanied minors and children who remain in foster care. Their struggles continue, which means our work must continue.
Never far from these conversations are other conversations - about the daily work we do with children in our neighborhoods who are deeply traumatized from being removed from their homes and the circumstances of their families. And we can’t forget our support of the adults with developmental disabilities in our care, who crave independence and a meaningful life as well.
What struck us in all these conversations was a deep need to belong. To find acceptance; to find support-. You know, that place where everyone knows your name. Yes, it's corny, but rings true.
It was in this moment we realized we had to shake things up and do more. Our campaign theme this year is about “Belonging.” With your help, we fight every day to reunite children and families or create new ones and for everyone in our care to have that sense of belonging.
To help us accomplish this, for the first time, we are offering multiple event sponsorship packages for events taking place within these next twelve months. We want to get you the most exposure and social impact as possible.
Thank you for considering a partnership with Abbott House and for helping children, families and adults with complex needs feel like you've got their backs.
