Dear Family & Friends of St. Christopher’s:
We know how challenging the COVID-19 pandemic has been for everyone…and so all of us at St. Chris sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Throughout the pandemic, our doors (physical and virtual) remained open and our work to help transform the lives of youth in our care continued. But we had to cancel our two 2020, in-person fundraisers, while simultaneously, our aid decreased and expenses increased. And that’s why we’re reaching out to ask you to participate in our first-ever virtual fundraiser—a vegan wine and dessert tasting on Friday, Dec. 4 between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. led by a respected wine expert and entrepreneur named Francis Gonzalez, who also happens to be a St. Chris alumna! Ticket sales and sponsorship opportunities are now available at our Eventbrite page at https://bit.ly/3dUDTGF. Please share this link with family, friends and colleagues and contact Dennis da Costa at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-357-6182 with questions, to reserve a sponsorship by check, or donate an awesome auction item. Thank you for your support.
Three Unique Campuses
Our main campus is set on 14 open acres of property with picturesque views of the magnificent Hudson River. Located in the heart of Westchester County, the campus is just 20 miles north of New York City and is easily accessible by public transportation. There are approximately 74 male and female residents with behavioral and emotional challenges.
Home to our Animal Assisted Therapy Program, our Jennie Clarkson campus is nestled on 35-acres of secluded, wooded property at Route 22 and Old Orchard Street. The tranquil campus serves as home to approximately 54 youngsters with cognitive and developmental challenges such as: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Bipolar and Depressive Disorders, and an IQ Range of 60-120
The New Windsor campus is located on 22-acres in Orange County, about one hour’s drive from the Agency’s main office. In the summer of 2016, the program objectives were refocused and the campus became a single gender program serving up to 36 girls. This program is designed to help young women ages 12-21 develop the strengths and coping skills they need to reduce the trauma they have experienced and pursue interests with less gender stereotyping.
