From the St. Ann’s website:
St. Ann’s Children’s Residential Program offers short-term care for up to 50 children in crisis, ages two days through twelve years. We are particularly sensitive to the needs of siblings and medically fragile youngsters, and offer placement to these children whenever possible.
WHY ARE CHILDREN PLACED AT ST. ANN’S?
Family problems, homelessness, abuse, neglect, parental drug abuse or incarceration, hospitalization, and other disruptive conditions often require temporary removal of a child from his current living situation to a more protective environment.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE PROGRAM?
Our main concerns are for the physical, social, and intellectual development of children. We strive to prepare them to return to their own homes, or for adoptive or foster care placements. As a member of the Consortium for Child Welfare, we participate in the development of a permanency plan for each child.
From St. Ann’s website, “We are especially in need of the following:”
- Vaseline or Aquafor
- Deodorant for boys and girls
- Bike helmets for children 8-12 years old
- Pull-up training pants
- Diapers in Sizes 4,5 and 6
- Similac Sensitive baby formula
- Gift cards from Giant, Safeway, Target, Kmart and Home Depot
