Abbott House Annual Report FY19 - Page 16



You believed
that the most
vulnerable
among us
deserved an
opportunity
to be safe,
heal and
discover
hope.
Here are just
a few of the
amazing things
YOU helped
make possible!
• YOU built a playground, a safe and fun place
for foster and immigrant children who come to
Abbott House to heal from trauma and just be
kids.
• YOU renovated the family visiting spaces in the
Bronx, to reduce the anxiety of biological parents
during supervised visits with children.
• YOU created and designed a music/reading
room for our immigrant children - a cheerful and
calming space where kids can de-stress and
discover the healing power of creativity and the
magic of imagination.
• YOU made sure that kids were prepared to take
on the school year by collecting and distributing
hundreds of backpacks and school supplies.
• YOU drastically reduced the burden on foster
families throughout our programs by collecting
and distributing hundreds of items such as
diapers, clothing, books and other essential
supplies.
• YOU provided more than 300 cultural and
educational enrichments, life skills and recreation
activities for children who do not get the same
opportunities that we provide for our own
children.
• YOU collected Spanish/English dictionaries so
every child in our TRC Program leaves with their
very own and is prepared to become part of their
community.
• YOU showed children that they are not alone
during the holidays by collecting and distributing
more than 2,500 gifts and toys.
