Children’s Crisis Treatment Center Offers Friends Program
Children’s Crisis Treatment Center
A former executive director of development for Christiana Care Health System in New Castle, Delaware, Andrew Pack volunteers his time and services with organizations including the local Philadelphia SPCA. In addition, he was the executive director of the Variety Club of Philadelphia from 1998 until 2009. Andrew Pack also supports the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center (CCTC).
CCTC is a Philadelphia-based nonprofit agency that focuses on behavioral health services for more than 2,400 children and their families. Established more than 40 years ago, CCTC addresses the impact of traumatic events, child abuse, neglect, and other areas that affect early childhood development.
The Friends of the CCTC program helps raise funds for the agency. Established in 2004, the group boasts more than 350 members and seeks to strengthen the mission of offering high-quality behavioral health services. Members share ideas with likeminded individuals, partake in hands-on volunteer opportunities, and work closely with the children who use CCTC’s services.
In recognition of their support, Friends members receive discounted tickets to CCTC events, including the annual Round-Up and Cruise for Kids. Membership to the organization costs $40 annually.
