A safe and nurturing haven for children from dangerous and/or troubled homes, Hillsides is a peaceful seventeen-acre residential facility, school and resource center. Its specialty is helping emotionally disturbed children improve their coping, social and academic skills, and it’s one of few places that help find housing, work and schooling for newly emancipated foster kids, who are kicked out of the foster-care system at 18, typically with few skills to take care of themselves. Needs include volunteers for tutoring and the library; adopt-a-family programs; and financial support.
