Department of Family and Community Interventions
The Department of Family and Community Interventions at Kennedy Krieger Institute is comprised of three separate programs: Therapeutic Foster Care, Early Head Start and Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress (outpatient mental health services). Although these programs provide different types of services to children and families, we are dedicated to the goal of improving the safety and stability of all of our families. Therefore the Department of Family and Community Interventions is hoping to raise money through our participation in “ROAR for Kids” to create a fund which would enable our families to access needed resources to improve the safety and functioning of their children and teens. Our goal is to empower the families in our three programs to prepare their children for school, be safe in the community, and to make an easier transition to adulthood.
About ROAR for Kids
As we host our first in person event in two years, we hope you will join us on Saturday, April 30, 2022 for Kennedy Krieger Institute’s ROAR for Kids at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, MD. ROAR for Kids will once again feature a 5K run and a low-mileage fun walk, which participants may participate in virtually or in person. Additionally, back by popular demand, the event will host a family festival including princesses, carnival games, the VERY popular Mascot Challenge and more! Registration opens at 6:30AM with both races and the family festival kicking off at 8:00AM, the Mascot Challenge will take place around 9:45AM with the event ending around 11:00AM. We hope to see you there!
