This #GivingTuesday, I am working alongside CPNYC to highlight the organization's mental health services which help children cope with the emotional challenges and traumatic loss that stems from parental incarceration. CPNYC's team of social workers, art therapists and psychiatrists work 6 days a week to provide children with the individual, family and group therapy needed to help our participants heal and grow. Our collective goal is to raise $50,000, which will ensure 12 months of critical mental health services for 125 participants. In order to reach this goal, I need your help! Until midnight on #GivingTuesday, all donations up to $10,000 will be MATCHED by the Limo Almi Foundation. Your $25 becomes $50 and $250 turns into $500, doubling the impact of your support! I hope you’re as excited as we are to impact on the lives of this deserving population.
CPNYC is community-based, non-profit organization in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn whose mission is to embrace the children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. CPNYC is an INCREDIBLE organization providing services to a forgotten community of children. At CPNYC these kids receive academic support, mental health services, mentoring and so much more.
