For many of us, family is the reason we work. Our families encourage and motivate us, and provide us a place we can be our true selves; a home without walls. Unfortunately, it is easy to forget that many families are facing challenging times, which can lead to unstable situations. This is why WRIGLEY'S is proud to support CONCERN, a local non-profit that has been caring for children and adolescents and strengthening families since 1978.
CONCERN serves children and youth through 17 different sites in eastern PA and Maryland. They offer adoption and foster care services that seek to find a stable and loving family for a kid in need. CONCERN also provides residential services for young men who are experiencing mental health and behavioral issues, giving the boys a safe space to live and grow towards becoming healthy, productive individuals. Additionally, CONCERN offers a number of counseling programs that focus on serving children, adolescents, parents, and families.
As stated in their mission, CONCERN has been promoting “respect, self-worth and trust in individuals and fosters the growth of healthy, responsible and productive community members”. For almost 40 years, CONCERN has not only been promoting these things, they have also been providing a model of service and care for those in need.
