Ben Minor, Children’s Restoration Network
Ben Minor is the Development Director at Children’s Restoration Network, a nonprofit organization that provides supportive services to help homeless children and homeless mothers across 20 Metro-Atlanta counties each year.
Ben has been working with Children’s Restoration Network for the past seven years, where he helps to manage some of the organization’s fundraising efforts as well as several of their educational programs, so he joined us on Pro Advocate Radio to share about CRN and the work they’re doing to help homeless kids be prepared for the start of the new school year.
Please visit the CRN website to learn more about upcoming events and campaigns to serve more of Georgia’s homeless children and single parents in need.
August 1st was “Stuff the Bus” day and WSB, Kroger and other businesses set up locations for us to drop off school bags and supplies. It was an incredible day of exciting community support and lots of smiles all around, especially when these kids received their new stuffed bags – so please check out the photos on the CRN or WSB Facebook pages!
Visit the website for more details on upcoming events and to learn how you can contribute now and on an ongoing basis to make a difference for the thousands of homeless children in our area.
We love this photo of WSB’s Sophia Choi stuffing the bus for Children’s Restoration Network, and what better way to engage talent in this mission than by featuring the work of legendary cartoonist Mike Luckovich!
The crew at WSB in Atlanta created a whirlwind of exciting news and social media posts, so please follow & share @WSBTV and @WSBradio
Please listen and share this broadcast with family, friends and across your social media networks!
Deb Beacham/My Advocate Center
Founder, Executive Director
My Advocate Center is building and offering solutions needed in each community, in each state in the U.S.A. and beyond. We are about improving family stability and seeing that the needs of children are met.
When families, especially single parents and children, become homeless it turns into a daily struggle to cover even their most basic needs so we are glad to feature Children’s Restoration Network and support their drive for school supplies, clothing and backpacks to help fill these voids for homeless children. As we grow and expand, we are engaging more organizations that work to prevent homelessness as well as to serve urgent and current needs in our communities.
Our work includes serving military and veteran families and children, as they often fall onto hard times during and after service, but our veterans are also a part of the solution. Positions are being created to put as many veterans and veteran family members to work as possible.
Our Professional Spotlight #onPAR serves the mission of uplifting families and children who are caught in conflict, whether it is before the breakup of a relationship, during divorce or child custody disputes, or after a legal battle when recovery and peace are needed.
Bold moves are being made to help parents understand how to better transition through & out of conflict, meaning we help reduce stress for children, and preserve family time & resources for their benefit.
Professionals who are like-minded are encouraged to connect and become a part of our Resource Directory. Please visit the Counsel for Change group page here on LinkedIn to learn more about our discussions. Our advisory panel reviews professionals to ensure certain standards are met. If you are focused on upholding ethics rules, professional duty, and are committed to helping children receive the best that both parents have to offer, let us know.
Our investigations, initiatives & strategies are also well suited to supporting government agencies in making necessary improvements to programs & services. It is important that these changes are made to better serve parents & children; but it is also possible to yield a positive economic return for each community & state.
MAC’s purpose in contributing to agencies & other organizations is to improve the divorce/child custody process in a way that leaves our communities stronger & better able to support the needs of children. We now have opportunities to lessen the impact of family violence, addiction & other dysfunction, while putting our financial resources to better use.
