We are supporting Association to Benefit Children in its goal to run 500 miles virtually this October. A goal that represents the 5000 children, caregivers, and community members it serves every year.
ABC’s vision is for all children to have a healthy, safe life filled with joy, learning, and love in a nurturing family. We serve children struggling with the complex issues of poverty, hunger, intergenerational trauma, anxiety and depression, emotional and physical abuse, lack of educational opportunity, homelessness, and disabilities. The COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated these existing needs and created new ones, including unprecedented levels of food insecurity, increased risk of child abuse, and learning losses.
ABC is determined to build a more resilient community out of this crisis and to ensure that all children have a healthy, safe life full of joy, learning, and love in a nurturing family. Offering extensive wraparound services to children’s families and the community, ABC cares for the whole child from cradle to adulthood.
