Scott and Nalani recently served up beer and wine to a wonderful crowd at the Museum of Commerce in Pensacola as part of a fundraising event benefiting the Children in Crisis chapter of Ft. Walton Beach. The Pensacola Museum of Commerce is a great venue for any kind of event or party and it sets up well with tables, food and beverage for up to 200 guests. The wine was flowing and everyone had a great time at this event, but the important message is what this wonderful organization does for children in need on the Gulf Coast.
Children in Crisis, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of caring people, working together to provide homes and keep brothers and sisters together. We give a home to the abused, neglected, and abandoned children of our community.
Before Children in Crisis, there was no Emergency Shelter in Circuit One (which includes Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in Northwest Florida) for young children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice.
Without CIC and the stability it brings, many foster children would be moved from home to home, some as many as ten times per year. The Children’s Neighborhood provides a home to an average of 100 children per year. Since opening our doors in 2008, CIC has been called “home” by over 620 children. Providing these children with over 70,000 days and nights of a safe, loving environment to grow and thrive. At The Children’s Neighborhood, sibling separation is minimized and it is our priority to keep brothers and sisters together.
Our neighborhood is growing, our campus is now built up of a Emergency Shelter, four family foster homes with another currently being built, Opportunity Home, the Kid’s Clubhouse and Administrative Offices. Your commitment to helping sustain operations of the Children’s Neighborhood is vital to our success. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children. Thank you for supporting our children!
