It's that time of year again... a time to be thankful for our many blessings and to help others around us. We at Geneva County Department of Human Resources would like to thank you for your support throughout the year and in years past.
Currently the Geneva County Department of Human Resources provides protective services for 75 children and at risk adults. These services range in spectrum from basic counseling to full foster care placement. Although, State funds do help with providing the most basic of care to these at risk children and adults, there are no State allocated funds to provide holiday gifts.
In an effort to assist with providing clothing and gifts at Chistmas for these individuals, our office has begun its annual Christmas Project is which funds and gifts will be collected. We realize that a lot of people want to help with this worthwhile project, but many people feel as if they cannot take on the huge task of solely providing for a child or adult at Christmas. Therefore, this year we are changing how a child or elderly adult is sponsored for Christmas gifts. Instead of seeking sponsors to purchase for a child or adult, we are simply asking for tax deductible monetary donations of any size. The money will be combined and collectively used to provide for each child and adult that DHR is providing care. If you would like further information, please contact our office at 334-684-5823 (Kelli Nichols) or 334-684-5834 (Kim Morris)
