About Fund to Benefit Children and Youth
The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth was founded by 5 individuals as an outgrowth of their volunteer work on the Advisory Council of the Lehigh County Office of Children and Youth Services. They saw firsthand how the basic needs of many abused, neglected and at-risk children were going unmet because of the lack of money from traditional government sources.
