Kids In Crisis Receives New Funding

SafeHaven for Kids, a core program of Kids In Crisis announces receipt of a $15,000 grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation. SafeHaven for Kids provides 24-hour Crisis Helpline counseling and referrals, In-Person Crisis Intervention, and a comprehensive Emergency Shelter Program for Connecticut newborn to 18-year-old kids of any race, ethnicity, religion, community of origin, socio-economic status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Anyone concerned about the safety and well-being of a child can call the SafeHaven for Kids Crisis Helpline at 203-661-1911, any time of the day or night, any day of the year, and receive immediate help. Many issues can be resolved with SafeHaven’s immediate and ongoing counseling and intervention. For those that can’t, children may enter its Emergency Shelter Program—a safe, nurturing home-like and therapeutic environment that provides individualized care to meet the physical and mental health needs of the children, and works to safely reunite them with their families.

“We are enormously grateful for this new funding from the New Canaan Community Foundation,” says Kids In Crisis Executive Director Shari L. Shapiro. “The steadfast support it has shown us over the years has been generous and essential to our ability to provide critically needed services to children and families.”
