Kids in Crisis Mission
Connecticut's ONLY facility for children newborn to age 17, Kids in Crisis provides free, temporary shelter, therapeutic counseling, comprehensive medical care and specialized educational support for children struggling with a wide range of issues including abuse, neglect, abandonment, family health issues and family conflict.
Founded in 1978, the Kids in Crisis mission is a simple one: to keep every child safe and sound. More than 9,600 families and children have been helped by Kids in Crisis, through use of their temporary shelters, crisis intervention services or community programs throughout Fairfield County. Kids in Crisis is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Kids in Crisis Vision
Kids in Crisis remains committed to providing unparalleled care, free of charge, to children and families from throughout Fairfield County. At the same time, they are dedicated to the goal of expanding community outreach programs through a wide array of prevention programs that have seen tremendous growth and success in recent years.
Another key goal of Kids in Crisis is advocacy for children who need safe, loving places to live when home is not an option. Too often, children are ready to leave Kids in Crises, bolstered by extensive therapeutic, medical and educational support, yet these children have few placement options. Kids in Crisis believes so many more in need can be served if there are more next steps for children; if Kids in Crisis can seize the excitement and empowerment they feel when they are ready to leave Kids in Crisis and foster that by finding them caring, long-term environments.
Kids in Crisis cannot and will not be able to do all that they can do without the dedication and support of an outstanding staff and Board of Directors, dedicated volunteers and loyal individuals, corporate and civic donors who join them in bettering the lives of children throughout our cities and towns.
