Dear Angels of Richstone,
As I reflect on 2016, and the more than 3,000 vulnerable children and families we served, I am humbled by the incredible work of our staff, volunteers and supporters.
This past year we saw a tremendous increase in the demand for our programs with reported cases of child abuse and domestic violence on the rise in our service area. But with the support of you, our Angels of Richstone, we were able to create meaningful change and accomplish so much!
Today, I’m asking you to join us and make a contribution to Richstone so we can continue to build upon our success and provide life-changing assistance to families who need us.
Richstone currently has hundreds of families on the waiting list to receive trauma-focused treatment services stemming from child abuse. The damaging long term emotional and health effects of child abuse are many and, if untreated, last throughout adulthood putting people at a higher risk of heart disease, depression, obesity and suicide.
The good news, though, is that with the support of dedicated and caring people like you, Richstone is making a difference.
Your support allows us to continue working with children and families to pursue our mission to treat and prevent child abuse and trauma; strengthen and educate families; and eliminate violence in the families, schools and communities.
For the low income families we serve, Richstone is often the only place where they can seek help. Our resources are limited and government support continues to shrink. Each contribution made during the Angel Campaign enables us to continue providing services that transition children and adults out of crisis and into stability, giving them the opportunity to have a productive and healthy life!
Thank you for being an Angel to our children!
