DONATE TO HELP SUPPORT JOYFUL CONNECTIONS

We need your help to provide to continue our valuable services.

DONATIONS TO JOYFUL CONNECTIONS

Joyful Connections is based on the premise that children can develop in a healthier manner when they have the opportunity for a relationship with each of their parents that is free from adult conflict and threats of abuse of any kind. Mental Health professionals indicate that children in out of home placements need immediate and frequent contact with their parents to minimize the trauma that can impact their physical and emotional health. Children adjust better and have fewer behavior and emotional issues if they visit their parents on a regular basis.

The need for the services offered by Joyful Connections may be due to issues related to divorce or separation, domestic violence, protection orders, child abuse and neglect or other safety concerns. No matter what the situation is, children want and need to see their parents. Joyful Connections offers a safe haven for children to spend time with their family and stay connected.

PLEASE HELP US BY:

  • Making a tax deductible donation.
  • Donating items needed for the center (See our wishlist below)
  • Becoming a volunteer to help at the center.
  • Donating your time to serve on a committee.

WHY DONATE?

  • Because these children need our help.
  • Because these children are the future of our community.
  • Because if we needed help, others would help us.
