The Krewe of Dionysos members continued their philanthropy in the community by making a donation to Cane River Children’s Services.
Cane River Children’s Services is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide healing and hope for children and families with mental health and behavior health needs. They operate a residential group home for girls ages 11 -17, an advanced transitional living home for girls 16 and older who are aging out of foster care and journeying towards young adulthood, and a Community Counseling Center which provides outpatient counseling services including individual, family, group therapy, and a Child Advocacy Program that provides free services to child victims of crime or domestic violence.
They are currently raising funds through a Christmas Drive to provide Christmas gifts for the residents as well as gifts for their birthdays throughout the year. In addition, they are in need of a new electric commercial range to replace their current one that is 20+ years old and desperately needs to be replaced.
They hope to raise funds in the near future to replace aging roofs at the Transitional Living home and the Counseling Center as well as major kitchen appliances and a/c units.
