This programs allow the children to remain safely in their home while their parents are working on recovery.
“The infusion of additional federal dollars will help children safely stay at home and get children that were removed safely back with their families faster,” emphasized Michael Williams, Our Kids Interim President and CEO. “Securing these kind of additional grant dollars along with fundraising efforts are part of Our Kids’ strategic efforts to enhance the level of services and assistance we are able to provide to the children and families in our community.”
