Waypoint is an organization that is near and dear to our hearts. Waypoint provides critical support to people of all ages who need help along the way, including children who have suffered from abuse and/or neglect.
As always, the proceeds from this outdoor family event will enable us to enhance our important work preventing child abuse and mitigating the effects of childhood trauma in the Upper Valley. However, this year the need is more crucial than ever because the overwhelming crisis brought on by substance misuse by parents impacts more children than you can imagine. As a result:
• there is a significant increase in the need to support foster families who care for these kiddos
• there is also an increase in the need for services for the foster children themselves
• the requests for safe supervised visitation (provided only here in the Upper Valley) has more than doubled
• the need for trauma-informed care for parents and children has skyrocketed.
All of these needs are in addition to the “usual” challenges we face supporting non-profit services.
Please join us in supporting this amazing organization!
