CHJC Receives Lowville Walmart Community Grant for Fostering Futures

CHJC (Children’s Home of Jefferson County) recently received a $1,000.00 grant from Walmart’s Local Community Grants Program in Lowville, New York.

Walmart’s more than two million associates are residents, neighbors, friends and families in thousands of communities around the globe. The Walmart Local Community Grant Program seeks to create value in communities where they operate, strengthening them through funding, supporting critical local programs and helping them thrive.

CHJC’s Fostering Futures Program provides both long and short-term services for youth unable to be cared for by their birth families or legal guardians. While receiving supportive care, counseling, and supervision, youth participating in the Fostering Futures Program are able to live within family homes, attend public schools, and be active members of their communities.
