Mission Statement

Things of My Very Own, Inc. is a recognized leader in providing support to children in New York State that have experienced extensive abuse and/or neglect, children that have been displaced, and those in 'at-risk' situations. Though we provide a multitude of services on a refferal basis. Some of our services include... transitional assistance, and lifeskill development programs that create healthy levels of self-esteem, increase self-confidence, and promote healthy relationships.

Description

Most of the time a transition into foster care is unexpected. Often children are not able to bring any items with them and are moved into an unfamiliar enviornment. We provide these children and teens with a package of personal items within a few hours of contact (e.g. clothing, toys, school supplies, etc.) though social service and foster care agencies, youth shelters, and some schools. We develop and provide lifeskill development programs specific to individual needs, and promote an enviorment where children can become happy healthy individuals. All of our programs are provided free of charge and are voluntary. Children have the opportunity to continue receiving services as long as they are in care until their 21st birthday. Some of our programs include performance arts, ropes courses, mentorship and career development programs, tutoring, story telling, etc.
