Special Collection for Families of Children with Special Needs

Follen’s Caring Congregation Committee provides emotional and practical support to individuals and families with special needs. These families often bear extraordinary expenses to support their children, such as a neuropsychological evaluation, specially trained tutors, specialized therapy, advocates, medical and other such expenses, which are not covered by insurance. As a result, many families suffer financial distress, often in silence.

Each year, CCC organizes a special collection and a Gala Fundraiser to raise funds to help these families. In worship this Sunday, there will be a special collection taken to support this valued and well-used sub-set of the Minister’s Discretionary Fund, which is managed confidentially by the Rev. Claire. Thank you for your continued generous support of this valuable resource that helps families in need feel less alone.
