Support Ivy’s Fund Today!

    Today is the day! Ace, Elvis, and Marshall want to let you know that May 18, 2022, is the 7th annual Hudson Valley Gives Day!

    What is Hudson Valley Gives? Hudson Valley Gives is a day of giving fueled by passion, collaboration and the power of social media. You can think of it as a type of digital telethon that benefits hundreds of much-deserving nonprofits in our area. At the Children’s Home, we see this as an incredible opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe in and help nonprofit organizations like ours connect to the larger community.

    How can I help? We have set a goal to raise $10,000 this #HVGives so that our our beloved 4-legged therapists can continue working to spread healing and hope to children and families right here in our communities! By making a contribution to Ivy’s Fund of any amount, you will be helping us to pay for board, care and continuous training needed for our Facility Service Dog program. Ace, Elvis and Marshall provide comfort to our children and allow them to open up about their traumas. This is the first step towards healing. Despite experiencing abuse, neglect, and maltreatment, our kids have found hope in their darkest times. We can all benefit from this powerful message. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated and will go toward continuing this valuable program.

    We’ve also put together an Ivy’s Fund Toolkit so that you can share all of the excitement. Here are some templates that you can use:
