The Christmas Box International Charity Profile
Our mission is inspired by the spirit and message of The Christmas Box, a book that emphasizes the beauty and importance of love for children. The Christmas Box International partners with local and international communities and groups to prevent child abuse and to improve the quality of life for children who have been abused or neglected. About Us
Each Christmas Box House serves as a one-stop assessment center for abused and neglected children, from infants through children up to the age of eighteen. Children in our care receive mental, emotional, and physical care in a home-like, loving environment. During their stay they are exposed to a variety of learning experiences. They participate in self-esteem building programs such as Recreational Therapy and a behavioral reward program. They receive dental and medical care and can attend school within the Christmas Box House. Our transitional therapy program helps ease the fears of the children who have been removed from unsafe homes. When a child enters a Christmas Box House the first thing they see is a large Christmas tree decorated year round. The children are allowed to choose a toy or stuffed animal from under the tree to join them in their experience at the Christmas Box House.
Children stay at the Christmas Box House until an appropriate placement has been made or until their environment at home is safe to allow for their return. The Christmas Box Houses are particularly helpful to sibling groups, who would oftentimes be separated from one another because of a lack of homes that can accommodate several children at once.
Mission: The Christmas Box International, in partnership with local, national, and international communities and groups, provides assistance to prevent child abuse and services to improve the quality of life for children who have been abused or neglected.
