The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth provides abused, neglected, and at-risk children in Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the items and services that traditional community and government sources cannot provide.
We are often the last hope for those in need.
We provide things like beds and cribs; winter coats, school uniforms, and sneakers; summer school and specialized summer camps; eyeglasses and dental care.
And the way we spend the contributions that our donors make is very important, too.
Every week The Fund meets needs like this:
Request #: 2022-04-NC#032
Amount Requested: $450
Request Category: Family & Household Needs
Appeal: After the court terminated the mother’s rights for her two children, an infant and a 15-year-old, the grandmother became kinship caregiver. To find a suitable apartment for the three of them, she spent all of her savings, and now can’t afford a crib for the baby and a full-size bed for the teen.
Status: The Fund approved $450 for a crib and a bed.
