Strengthening community begins with the first step.
Let it start on the Front Step.
#TheFrontStepsProject aims to highlight the faces of our community during a time when we might not see them in passing at the grocery store, coffee shop, on the train, at the gym or just wandering around Shippan.
#TheFrontStepsProject bring us together virtually despite being – and maybe feeling – isolated. We may be temporarily separated, but we are always united.
The need for the services provided by KIC is ongoing and expanding - especially during crisis - all while resources are diminishing.
Crisis can mean so many things. Maybe it’s a child frustrated or scared about COVID who doesn’t feel comfortable talking to their family about it. Or caregivers needing guidance about how to work their kids through this and many other crisis. Please realize that there are children in your neighborhood and classmates of your children who are reaching out for the aid and counseling that Kids In Crisis provides. Crisis isn’t limited to any particular socio-economic group, and KIC doesn’t define their aid within any such boundaries.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to helping children, our most vulnerable population.
