Kids in Crisis, the local non-profit Kids in Crisis recently lost its state funding and the cut puts the future of the organization in jeopardy. In November, the agency announced that the state had cut $750,000 in funding, and that the cut would go into effect in just 10 days. Since then, the entire Greenwich community has rallied around the organization, with all manner of fundraisers staged from from a collection jar at the dry cleaners to Angela Swift’s polar plunge on New Year’s Day.
Kids in Crisis is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises – domestic violence, mental health and family problems, substance abuse, economic difficulties and more. Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families; last year, over 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization.
