Week of Caring

Family and Children's Aid Danbury Campus

Through the Week of Caring, Family and Children's Aid has been able to make our physical properties a part of the therapeutic process. The ability to maintain and enhance the facilities that our clients utilize and live in has a direct impact on the healing and recovery process for children faced with psychiatric disorders, trauma, neglect, abuse, and poverty. GE volunteers ensure every client has the same experience when entering our facilities by creating warm, welcoming, and safe environments.

Over the course of this 15-year relationship, the impact of GE volunteers has been staggering: they have provided 40,480 volunteer hours, which is the equivalent of 1,012 weeks or 19 years of labor, and which represents a financial offset of over $800,000 dollars in maintenance staffing.
