The employees of SteppingStones kindly donated a portion of their salaries, which was matched by the company, to benefit the Frances Bodden Children’s Home.
Children who live at the residential facilities operated by the CAYS Foundation are under the care of the Department of Children and Family Services. Many of these children come into care having complex mental health, psychosocial, emotional and behavioural difficulties as a result of having experienced trauma, abuse, neglect and the uncertainty that comes from living in difficult circumstances. Such exposure to risk and stressful family events often affect their early development, behaviour, confidence and ability to attach positively to adults.
