Upcoming Events

Back to School Supply Drive
NOW through August 22, Children's Home + Aid is hosting a School Supply Drive. The need is great for school supplies and this drive is to ensure that our Foster Youth begin the school year successfully with all the materials they may need. We created a Target Registry online to make it as easy as possible!
