Social Service Websites I Support:

In class today we all shared different social service websites that we support and feel raise awareness or bring help to social problems that we support.  I spoke about Children’s Friend and Family Services located in Salem, Massachusetts.  Their current mission statement is, “To improve the lives of children and promote strong families by partnering with community organizations to provide services to strengthen individuals, families, and community life.”  I feel this is an extremely influential and beneficial cause for the New England area and they have had so many success stories from parent to parent counseling, mental health counseling, juvenile court services etc.  Another organization that I strongly support is Christopher’s Haven located in Boston, Massachusetts.  Their mission statement is, “to make a tangible difference in the day-to-day lives of children and the families who bring them to the MassGeneral Hospital for Children for cancer treatment by providing comfortable housing and a supportive community.”  This organization has changed the lives of so many families and made some of the most challenging situations much more comfortable in an extremely loving and supportive community.  Both organizations are very important to me and I think they could use everyone’s support.  Christopher’s Haven is now on facebook but neither website have a lot of media support, and could definitely use more to get their name started.  Look over the sites and let me know what you think, thanks!
