Children's Home Society (CHS) is pleased to launch this year's annual holiday fundraising effort with all proceeds going to provide permanent, safe, and loving families for children in need.

"At Children's Home Society, we believe that healthier families shape healthier communities," said Brian Maness, President & CEO of Children's Home Society. "We are committed to giving every child and family a voice and relentlessly advocating for their success. Because of our supporters, children will thrive, families will grow stronger, and communities will flourish."

The Little Red Stocking campaign allows CHS to provide the highest quality adoption and foster care services, as well as educational and prevention programs to keep families healthy, strong, and intact. The need is greater than ever, with more than 12,000 children living in foster care in North Carolina and more than 500 youth aging out of foster care each year.

Last year, the Little Red Stocking Fund helped ensure:

  • Temporary foster care was provided to 999 children.

  • Life-long support services were offered to 618 adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth parents.

  • Family preservation services, which focus on keeping children in their own homes, impacted 465 families and 1,167 youth.

  • Youth education programs addressing life skill development, teen pregnancy prevention, and substance abuse prevention influenced 3,426 adolescents.

You can give hope to children across North Carolina this year by supporting the annual Little Red Stocking Fund. For more information and to donate to the Little Red Stocking campaign, please call 1-800-632-1400 or visit www.chsnc.org.
