Holiday Appeal - 2 - CopyNovember 2017

Dear Friend,

PEI Kids has been serving the community for 32 years with the mission of promoting and maintaining a safe environment for all children. This year, in particular, has been a struggle to obtain needed support. Grants and fundraising events provide only a portion of funding required to sustain our work. It’s giving, from caring people like you, that continues to make our work possible in the community.

If the work we do is important to you . . . 

If you think it’s vital for children in crisis to have a place to turn for professional, therapeutic support, regardless of ability to pay . . .  if you feel it‘s important for a child to learn that they have a right to be “safe, strong and free” . . . if you know of a teenager that needs a lifeline to help turn his/her life around, then we are asking you to make a gift to PEI Kids to ensure that this work continues for young people in our community.

Below, we have identified specific financial goals in order for us to continue providing these life-saving and life-changing services. Please make your contribution today, to the program of your choice, through our Go Fund Me pages at the URLs indicated below. Your gift will help us meet our program funding needs and the needs of many local children and families who depend on PEI Kids to find healing, strength, and restoration.

Now, more than ever, your financial support is needed to sustain PEI Kids’ legacy of never turning away a child in need. As the holidays draw near, we hope you will open your heart by choosing to support PEI Kids and the work we’re doing in your community. We simply cannot do this work without you.

With a grateful heart,

Each year, we provide over 1,800 counseling sessions for child victims of sexual abuse and start them on a journey of healing and recovery.  PEI Kids is the only agency in the region offering this specialized counseling and support at no cost to victims or their families.

To avoid turning away children in need, we are seeking your help to provide 120 additional counseling sessions this year. Your support will help us meet the increasing need to serve child victims through professional, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and specialized support groups so children in our community can heal and recover from the trauma of sexual abuse.

We need your support to provide safety workshops for school children in K through 8th grade. Through our abuse/assault prevention workshops, children learn how to assert their rights, stay safe from physical and sexual abuse, violence, and bullying.

We have received requests to provide 306 school-based children’s workshops during the 2017-18 school year. We are asking for your help to raise $80 per workshop so that we can deliver this life-saving and life-changing instruction for children in our community.

PEI Kids’ Juvenile Intervention Juvenile Intervention

Goal: $5,500

The teens in our Juvenile Intervention program are under probation supervision or recently released from detention.  They come to us seeking direction, support and guidance on how to make better choices, resist gang involvement, and pursue constructive alternatives to crime.

In turn, we can offer a warm, nutritious meal during our Saturday sessions, when these youth often lack access to school lunch or a hot meal. It is often the promise of a healthy meal that brings youth to our program on a cold Saturday morning to learn important life lessons.  Your support will enable us to provide food and healthy snacks for adjudicated youth working to turn their lives around.
