Spotlight On: Family and Community Services On: Family and Community Services<p><strong>Part I:</strong></p><p>It's every parent's worst fear: not being or having enough for their child. When struggles with employment, housing, relationship instabilities or mental and physical health issues affect a parent's ability to provide a safe and supportive home for their child, it can lead to intervention from outside organizations. Our Family and Community Services help struggling families stay together and/or help families safely and successfully reunite if children have been removed from the home.</p><p>Our Care Coordination Team helps families identify and access needed supports and resources, navigate care systems to keep children safe and improve home stability. Consultants assist with developing and improving parenting skills while also teaching parents to advocate for themselves. </p><p>Boys Town In-Home Family Services® have trained Family Consultants who help families in their own homes. The Family Consultants empower parents by teaching them new parenting skills and by providing emotional support 24/7.</p><p><strong>Part II:</strong></p><p>Our Family and Community Services team is led by Kaitlyn and Jen. In 2017, Kaitlyn began working at Boys Town after completing her Master's degree in Barcelona, Spain, and conducting post-thesis research in Lebanon. Jen has been with Boys Town since 2008; prior to that, she was in a leadership position at an early childhood facility. </p><p>One of the fun things we like to ask our employees is “Why Boys Town? Why do you show up every day for your families?" Our Family and Community Services team member's answers are incredibly inspiring and truly exemplify our staff as a whole. Our employees are the perfect mix of passion and compassion with a good dash of determination and hard work sprinkled in. Here's some of their responses: </p><p><strong>Kaitlyn: </strong>“I show up every day and give 100% because I have seen the change that is possible when you teach families positive skills, link them to the right resources and advocate for them along the way. There is no better feeling than seeing your families happy and healthy."</p><p><strong>Jen:</strong><em> </em>“We get to support families, see them evolve and learn and ultimately reunify. This is why I chose to be in this line of work; everyone deserves a chance in life."</p><p><strong>Sharae:</strong> “I believe every family falls on hard times and deserves to be saved. I enjoy being that positive spark that helps families reunite."</p><p><strong>Alcida: </strong>“Boys Town is changing families' lives for the better on a daily basis. I want to be a part of this mission."</p><p><strong>Brittany:</strong> “It is the task of the enlightened not only to ascend to learning and to see the good, but to be willing to descend again to those prisoners and to share their troubles and their honors, whether they are worth having or not." – Plato, “The Allegory of the Cave"</p><p><strong>Anastasia: </strong>“I believe in providing genuine support and resources for families. I wanted to work somewhere that has a concrete, positive impact on the community – and Boys Town fights for that."</p><p><strong>Charles:</strong> “We offer hope to our families that they can live beyond their current situation. Watching a person transcend their circumstances is exhilarating and inspiring!"</p><p><strong>Melissa:</strong> “I have a passion for helping others in times of hardship! I want to help empower our clients to be confident, courageous and strong for themselves and their families."</p><p><br></p>2020-04-01T05:00:00ZNews<img alt="Family and Community Service" src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/SpotLight.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />text/html; charset=utf-8 NewsEvent
Rhode Island Brother and Sister Find Their Forever Family with Boys Town Foster Parents Island Brother and Sister Find Their Forever Family with Boys Town Foster Parents<p>When Owen and Harper arrived at Sonia Diaz's home, the foster mom quickly realized she had work to do. Not unlike many children in their situation, Owen, age 5, and Harper, age 4, had histories of physical and emotional abuse, and each had behavioral issues to work through. </p><p>Owen was a rollercoaster of emotions, which often resulted in tantrums and outbursts. He desperately needed support to learn the skills necessary to work through issues and situations in healthier ways. Harper was the opposite – reserved and shy – almost to the point of being mute. Sonia wasn't even able to get Harper to choose a pair of shoes to wear in the morning without spending the better part of an hour coaxing an answer out of her.</p><p>But Sonia and her husband, Jose, weren't deterred. With over nine years of experience as Boys Town Foster Parents, they were more than prepared for the challenge. They spent months building up trusting relationships with Owen and Harper, and focused on empowering them by providing plenty of emotional support and guidance. </p><p>Over time, Owen's emotional outbursts lessened as he learned better ways to cope with and express his feelings. And Harper eventually began singing at church in front of the entire congregation – in Spanish, which is not her first language! </p><p>It didn't take long before Sonia and Jose decided they couldn't bear the thought of Owen and Harper leaving their home, so they began the adoption process. In January of 2020, Owen and Harper officially became members of the Diaz family.</p><p>Individuals like Sonia and Jose are the reason Boys Town New England can provide such incredible care options to its foster children. The Diaz family began fostering in 2011 after Sonia just couldn't kick the feeling that “something was missing." She got hooked on watching “Tuesday's Children," a weekly spot run on Rhode Island news channels that spotlights an adoptable local child. On a whim one day, she reached out to Boys Town – and since then they've never looked back.</p><p>Sonia and Jose have built lasting relationships with more than two dozen foster children who they've welcomed into their home. Sonia prides herself on being an advocate for the children in her care, their biological families and reunification whenever it is possible. She is still in touch with the first sibling set she fostered, both are teenagers now, and their mom who Sonia pushed to be reunited with her children despite language and cultural differences that made communication tough. Over the course of their fostering lives, Sonia and Jose have adopted four children (although, according to Sonia, Jose would have “adopted them all if he could!"). They also have three adult biological children. “I always wanted a huge family!" Sonia said while laughing. </p><p>Sonia credits the ease of the foster process to Boys Town New England. “The staff at Boys Town New England…they are not my coworkers and they are not just another agency – they are my family. I can always rely on them, whether I need help with my foster kids, my adopted kids or my biological kids. They are here for my entire family; every child is important."</p><p><strong>To learn more about becoming a foster parent please call us today at 401-845-2250 (RI) or 800-847-2025 (MA), or visit us online at <a href="/new-england"></a>.</strong></p>2020-04-01T05:00:00ZNews<img alt="Introducing Owen and Harper Diaz!" src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/BT-FosterParents.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />text/html; charset=utf-8 NewsEvent
Local Middle Schooler Donates More Than 120 Hours of Support Middle Schooler Donates More Than 120 Hours of Support<p>When 15-year-old Ashley Burke first reached out to Boys Town New England's Development Office in the summer of 2018, Development Coordinator, Elizabeth Rose, was impressed and excited. </p><blockquote><p><em>“Ashley needed a project to do for her Girl Scout troop and chose Boys Town," Rose said. “She had already researched our organization and was eager to help children in need. After identifying a project that could be done from afar – Ashley lives in New York – she offered to make gift tags for our Adopt a Child Christmas drive. They were adorable and the kids loved them! We were so thankful for her support."</em></p></blockquote><p>But it didn't stop there. Ashley wanted to continue helping and soon pitched a second project following a suggestion made by Boys Town staff. Since many of the kids who arrive at Boys Town New England are lacking basic toiletries, Ashley volunteered to make dozens of drawstring toiletry bags and source all the items needed to fill them – right down to the hourglass timers the children could flip to make sure they were brushing their teeth for the appropriate amount of time. Ashley also provided plenty of boxes filled with extra items.</p><p>In all, Ashley put in more than 120 hours on the project, including traveling from her home in New York to deliver all the items, tour the campus and meet Boys Town youth and staff. From working on the project, Ashley said, “I learned that not everyone is born into an ideal childhood or has the same opportunities as I do. There is always something you can do to help others, no matter how big or small."</p><p>Through her work with Boys Town, Ashley was able to earn her Girl Scouts Silver Award, the highest award a Cadette can receive. Over the last two years, Ashley has shown an amazing dedication to supporting children in need – and for that the entire Boys Town New England team is incredibly thankful. Well done, Ashley!</p><p><img src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/volunteer-2.jpg" alt="Volunteering" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p><img src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/volunteer-3.jpg" alt="Volunteered Items" style="margin:5px;" /> </p><p><img src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/volunteer-1.jpg" alt="Volunteer" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p>2020-04-01T05:00:00ZNews<img alt="I wanted to help kids who are not as fortunate as I am." src="/locations/new-england/news-and-events/PublishingImages/volunteer-1.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />text/html; charset=utf-8 NewsEvent
Boys Town New England Christmas Tree Lighting Town New England Christmas Tree Lighting<p>On December 5, Boys Town New England hosted their Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. The Portsmouth Middle School Glee Club performed Christmas carols, Santa was delivered in style thanks to the Portsmouth Fire Department, and Santa Billy of the Viking Riders and National Grid helped light the tree. Guests also toured the family homes to get the chance to see the living environment for the youth on campus. ​<br></p>2020-01-24T06:00:00ZNews<img alt="tree lighting" src="/locations/new-england/PublishingImages/NENGL-Tree-Lighting.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />text/html; charset=utf-8 NewsEvent
Newport Marathon and Half Marathon officially sets fundraising record in 2019 Marathon and Half Marathon officially sets fundraising record in 2019<p><em>​</em><strong style="background-color:transparent;"><em>This article is written by Daily News staff. It was </em><a href="" target="_blank"><em>posted on</em></a><em> on November 25, 2019.</em></strong></p><p> <span style="background-color:transparent;">With the final numbers tallied, Gray Matter Marketing and Amica Insurance have announced the 2019 Amica Insurance Newport Marathon and Half Marathon has set a new fundraising record for the event, raising a combined total of more than $156,000 for local and regional charities. Including the 2019 total, the event has now contributed approximately $420,000 to nonprofits since 2015.</span></p><p>Each year, the race organization donates directly to the event's official charitable partners: the Aquidneck Land Trust, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, the Ronald McDonald House of Providence, Clean Ocean Access, Boys Town New England and the YMCA of Newport County.</p><p>In addition, event participants raised a combined total of approximately $92,000 for a variety of chosen charities. Sparrow's Nest, a nonprofit in upstate New York that provides meals for families whose primary caretakers are unable to cook due to extended illness and treatment, had the largest team contribution — their 26 runners at the Amica Insurance Newport Marathon raised $62,000 for their organization.</p><p>This year, Amica Insurance announced a new initiative called RUN-raising for Good, through which 10 randomly selected fundraisers received an additional $1,000 contribution for their designated charity. The contributions were given on behalf of the following runners: Allison Neves, running for Samaritans, Inc.; Patrice French, running for Ronald McDonald House of Providence; Andrew Chagnon, running for Boys Town New England; Lindsey Machamer, running for Boys Town New England; Ken Dobler, running for Firefighters Fighting ALS; Amanda Jones, running for Clean Ocean Access; Gabriela Gonzales, running for Boys Town New England; Tammy Allard, running for Running For Rescues; Kimberly Ohnemus, running for Clean Ocean Access; and Nora Johnson, running for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation.</p><p>“I have run for charities in some of my other marathons, but this year's Amica Newport Marathon was special, running for my friend Steve, who is battling ALS, and his foundation, Firefighters Fighting ALS," Ken Dobler, one of the Amica donation recipients, said in a press release. “I was overwhelmed by the financial support I received from friends, and appreciate being selected by Amica to receive an additional donation."</p><p>Dobler also shared, “On a separate note, in a back-and-forth with Steve about the fundraiser's progress, Steve wrote, 'Proud dad moment. I showed my eight-year-old son ... and he said when he is allowed to run a marathon, he was going to help a friend. Thank you for planting the seed; that alone is worth a million.'"</p><p>Amanda Jones received an Amica donation for environmental nonprofit Clean Ocean Access. “This was my second year in a row running in the Amica Newport Half Marathon, which was an absolute blast," she said in the release. “The course is stunning, with beautiful views of the ocean from just about every mile.</p><p>“Without [a healthy ocean], I wouldn't be able to see all the amazing views that I do while running, walking or studying at Salve Regina University. That's why the Clean Ocean Access mission is so important to me — their vision is for a healthy ocean that's free of marine debris, with water that is safe for all ocean activities and a shoreline that is accessible to the public."</p><p>In addition, runners were able to vote for their favorite of five themed water stops, designed and staffed by Amica employees. The winning group got to choose an Amica Insurance Newport Marathon nonprofit partner to receive a $5,000 donation from Amica, and selected the Ronald McDonald House of Providence.</p><p>The Amica Insurance Newport Marathon and Half Marathon will return on Oct. 11, 2020, with event registration opening Dec. 2, 2019.</p><p>For more information, visit​<br></p>2019-12-04T06:00:00ZNewstext/html; charset=utf-8 NewsEvent
