The Board of Directors of the Greenwich Association of Realtors and the Greenwich Multiple Listing Service, Inc. have approved a $10,000 donation to Kids in Crisis to support its mission in providing free, round-the-clock crisis counseling and temporary shelter for infants, children and teens.
The Greenwich Association of Realtors upped their commitment to Kids in Crisis after learning about the State of Connecticut’s cuts in funding.
“Realtors are committed to supporting their community and we encourage others in the community to help,” said Joann Erb, President of the Greenwich Association of Realtors.
“We’re grateful for the Greenwich Association of Realtors for their ongoing support of Kids in Crisis and their commitment to helping our children in light of the recent loss of state funding,” said Shari Shapiro, Executive Director of Kids in Crisis.
Kids in Crisis, based in Cos Cob, 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 the organization provided assistance to 6,184 children and families.
