100KidsInc. Is announcing a $50K fund development campaign to finance the launch of an operational space the organization will utilize to serve youth in Hudson County, NJ.
Founder Christine Bell says the mission of 100KidsInc. is to promote the overall wellbeing and stability of vulnerable children. “We’re looking to create a safe space and encourage healing,” she says, “by offering home-grown programs based on research and best practices.”
Presently operating virtually due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, 100KidsInc. Is providing a range of services including online youth gatherings, grief support groups, social-emotional learning programs, professional therapeutic service, and individualized case management.
“We’re using a humanistic approach, strength-based perspective, and social resilience model,” Bell says, “And we believe that when we can reach 100 young people, imagine what those young people can do.”
The long-term strategic goals of 100KidsInc. include reducing the number of vulnerable youth in out-of-home placements, increasing the number of family-style home environments for vulnerable youth experiencing temporary or permanent separation from their primary guardians, augmenting access to community-based mental health services, and reducing the rate of youth adversely affected by the criminal justice system.
The organization is focusing on youth in order to sow seeds and create agents of change. “We also want to connect these young people with internships/externships with community partners, as well as encourage entrepreneurship through mentorship programs,” Bell says.
The values 100KidsInc. Center on integrity, teamwork, partnership, advocacy, diversity and inclusion, and respect for all people. “We stand on the side of equity and social justice for all. We support the rights of every child, family and community to engage in efforts to improve their quality of life.”
