Helping children in therapeutic foster care
(Paramus, NJ) September 24, 2014 – Children’s Aid and Family Services’ Woodlea/Path I Advisory Council hosted a fundraising event to support tutoring and recreational activities for children in therapeutic foster care. “We are tremendously grateful to our dedicated volunteers who care so much about our children,” says Bob Jones, Ph.D., president & CEO of Children’s Aid and Family Services. “Their support helps us give our children the extras that a family would usually supply, such as outings to sporting events and plays, music and dance lessons, birthday parties and furnishings for the homes. These experiences help our children feel valued, which contributes to their healing.”
