HONOR A FATHER, HELP ANOTHER
May 15 @ 12:00 am - June 18 @ 12:00 am
This Father’s Day, celebrate a special father in your life by making a gift in his honor or in his memory to Children’s Aid and Family Services.
In grateful acknowledgement of your gift, your dad, children’s dad, grandfather, uncle, brother, brother-in-law or friend will receive a personalized Father’s Day card from Children’s Aid, letting him know that he is helping other dads in the community to build brighter futures for themselves and their families. A personalized remembrance card will be sent to a family member in memory of a beloved father.
These special cards will also contain a QR Code for your loved one(s) to easily link to our Fathers Being Honored and Remembered webpage which will list the names of all the fabulous dads being celebrated.
Your gift will celebrate and support the diverse group of fathers in the Children’s Aid family, including: Foster fathers who open their hearts and homes to children who have suffered from abuse, neglect and trauma; fathers whose adult children have intellectual and developmental disabilities and need a strong support system to help their children become more independent; fathers who are struggling with the devastating disease of addiction; and young fathers who have “aged out” of foster care and are working on educational and career goals to help them create better lives for themselves and their children.
By making an individual gift, you are helping to provide:
- Scholarships for educational or vocational training for young dads aging out of foster care
- Specialized training for our therapeutic foster parents
- Diapers and baby essentials to families in need
- Free support services for fathers who are suffering from the disease of addiction
- Workshops to help strengthen families
By becoming a PARTNER, you can support the initiative on a leadership level like sponsors of our events.
Partners will be recognized in all Honor a Father, Help Another communications including weekly emails to over 2,500 active supporters and on social media posts. Partner Names/Logos will also appear on our Fathers Being Honored and Remembered webpage on cafsnj.org. Each Partnership level is invited to celebrate the special fathers in their lives.
Beginning June 1st, 2023, the names of all the special dads being celebrated, and those of our Partners, will be posted and available for viewing on our Fathers Being Honored and Remembered webpage. Names will be added on an ongoing basis. Please consider making a gift before June 9th. We want these special dads to receive their cards before Father’s Day! All fathers being honored through gifts received before June 14th will be added to our website before Father’s Day.
All proceeds from Honor a Father, Help Another will benefit the programs and services that Children’s Aid and Family Services provides to the vulnerable children, adults and families in our community.
Thank you to Our Partners
