Thank you for considering an Annual Fund gift during our
145th Anniversary Celebration!

In honor of our 145th Anniversary, we put together this short video to share with you.  It gives you an inside look at the faces of Sarah A. Reed Children's Center.  Liana, Jonah, Gavin, Samantha…these are some of the children you are making a difference for when you make an Annual Fund gift.  These are the lives you are changing and the programs you are supporting:


Every year, more than 1,700 children ages 3-18 turn to Sarah A. Reed Children’s Center for the help and healing they need to grow up healthy and successful.  They are learning critical tools and skills to cope with mental health and behavioral health issues. Sadly, many of these children are also dealing with the damaging effects of abuse and trauma. 

That’s where your support makes a difference.  Your gift to this year’s Annual Fund helps provide the following vital programs for children and families at Sarah Reed’s seven campuses throughout Erie County:

  • Partial Hospitalization Programs for Children
  • Psychiatric Outpatient Programs
  • Therapeutic Alternative Education Services
  • Wraparound (school-based) Program
  • Career Alternative Education Program
  • Bayfront Alternative Education Program
  • Therapeutic Daycare
  • Residential Treatment
  • Psychiatric Medication Management
  • Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS)
  • Blended Case Management
  • SELF (Sanctuary Education for Learning Fundamentals)Program
  • School-Based services such as the Student Assistance Program and Refocus Rooms
Remember, when you give to Sarah A. Reed Children’s Center you’re making a life-changing impact on a child.  We hope you’ll consider making a life-changing impact for the children at Sarah Reed by making a donation to our Annual Fund.
