St Jude’s Ranch Press Announcement – Child Abuse Increases in Difficult Economic Times

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 18, 2008

One of the tragic consequences of tough economic times is an increase in family breakdowns. That means more abandoned, neglected and abused children. April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month, a time to bring attention to the 7,000 children who are dropped off somewhere, or forgotten, or left on a street corner every year in the United States. Their parents are drug addicts, criminals, prostitutes, mentally ill, or just destitute. Many thousands more children are abused, or neglected to the point that the local child protective services agency steps in and puts them in foster care or, if they’re in Texas and Nevada, sends them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children.

St. Jude’s Ranch provides therapeutic healing and nurturing to these children that society has abandoned, and, unlike almost every other child care organization, has the ability to keeps siblings together. For example, most foster homes do not. “We believe it’s the right thing to do, the family thing to do” says Christine J. Spadafor, CEO of St Jude’s Ranch. “When these children come to us, often the only things they have left are brothers and sisters. Keeping them together gives them a place to start from, something to build on after all the trauma they have experienced together in their short lives.”

“We are bringing more children into our safe haven, including a family of 7 kids,” says Spadafor. “We always take in more children when times are tough, like now, because families can fall apart under economic pressure.”

The family of 7 children again sets St. Jude’s Ranch apart – it is the only therapeutic children’s program in the area that can keep so many brothers and sisters together as a family. Before living at the Ranch, they all lived in different homes, or were constantly on the move. “We gave them their own home on the Nevada campus, the first one they have ever had together,” says Spadafor. “It was absolutely the right thing to do. Given where they came from, it took some time for them to adjust and realize this is their home where it now feels safe and stable enough for them to stop living out of their suitcases, which is all they have known, and put their clothes in the drawers.”

Fundraising is more difficult when the economy is bad, and St. Jude’s Ranch must raise $ 1 for every $ 1 the state gives the not-for-profit. These tough economic conditions mean additional pressure on the organization at a time when it is taking in more children. “We’re finding it more challenging to raise money this year,” says Spadafor, “Giving is down just when we need it most.”

Like most families in America, St Jude’s Ranch must find creative ways to make ends meet. For example, one of their corporate sponsors, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, turned an employee conference in Las Vegas into a socially-responsible endeavor. Instead of hitting the tables, they enlisted staff teams to honor ‘wish lists’ and provided a truck full of boxes containing individualized clothes, shoes, toys and essentials for each of the children in both Nevada and Texas.

Helen, the mail room supervisor, goes once a week to the casinos and collects unclaimed lost and found items. She sorts through the astonishing range of things that people leave behind and sets aside shirts, trousers, dresses and jackets used to clothe the children, as they typically arrive at the Ranch with only the clothes they are wearing. Whatever Helen decides the children cannot use goes to the Ranch’s gift shop – now a shopping destination for people who pass it on their commute from Boulder City to Las Vegas or on their way to Boulder Dam and Lake Mead.

As well as taking care of the every-day expenses, larger donors are also vital to St. Jude’s Ranch as they aim to expand their services to other children in need. “We’re desperate to open our facility for pregnant and parenting teens; we are only in the planning stages and are already getting requests to place pregnant girls, the youngest being 10 years old,” says Spadafor. “Not to mention new programs that will provide homes for the many children who are bounced around the system, in and out of foster care. Some are sent to prison because they have no home and there’s nowhere else for them to go.”

“We need America to keep giving,” says Spadafor, “especially when times are tough. It’s not for lack of caring,” she continues, “It’s just that people don’t always know we’re here. That’s why having a month dedicated to National Child Abuse Awareness is so important to organizations like ours and to our children.”
