This year I had the pleasure to learn about the AVIVA CENTER – a comprehensive child-family service agency. They help teen girls with safe harbor, educational and training. They also provide foster care and adoption services, including in the LGBT communities.
The AVIVA CENTER will be on my list of charities to show some #SocialGood #SocialMedia love to this #GivingTuesday.
What is the AVIVA CENTER? Their website explains it best and is summarized below:
Each year Aviva Family and Children’s Services serves more than 6,500 clients, including 1,530 children and youth ages birth to 21, most of whom come from homes below the federal poverty level.
Aviva helps remove emotional, social or other barriers which make it possible not only to transform the lives of individuals, but also to help halt the vicious cycle of abuse and neglect.
We do this by providing compassionate support, therapeutic services and guidance to at-risk children and families in four main program areas:
- Wraparound Services
- Community Mental Health Services
- Foster Family and Adoption Services
- Residential Treatment Services
