Parsons Camp to Belong Awarded $3,000 Grant



Parsons Child & Family Center’s Camp to Belong NY program has been awarded a $3,000 grant from the MAXIMUS Foundation.

The grant will help support operations for Camp to Belong NY, a weeklong camp provided free of charge to children who have been separated by the foster care system. This year’s session will be held June 24-30 at Camp Chingachgook in Lake George.

“We are grateful for the support of the MAXIMUS Foundation for this worthy program,” said William T. Gettman, Jr., CEO of Parsons parent organization Northern Rivers Family of Services. “Giving foster children the chance to bond with their siblings allows them to strengthen bonds and create memories that will last a lifetime.”

“On behalf of the MAXIMUS Foundation, I am proud to provide this award to Camp to Belong NY,” said John Boyer, MAXIMUS Foundation Chairman. “Northern Rivers and its staff embody the values that the MAXIMUS Foundation strives to achieve through its grant making program – promoting personal growth and self-sufficiency through improved health, augmented child and family development and community development. It is an honor to present this grant to such a deserving organization, and I thank Northern Rivers for its commitment to enriching the lives of those it serves.”
