The Auxiliary was formed in 1962 by Mrs. Ben L. Bird. The Auxiliary’s main purpose was to work with the children who were living in ACH's care and provide them with the love and attention that they so desperately needed since they were separated from their own families. Over the years, the home, the children, and their needs continued to change. Therefore, the Auxiliary adjusts its activities to focus on today's challenges and tomorrow's world.
The Women's Auxiliary was reinstated in 2015 during the 100-year anniversary celebration of ACH Child and Family Services. The group was tasked with a new vision to support children and families served by the organization through service opportunies and advocacy in our community.
Joining the ACH Women's Auxiliary is a sure way to become part of a team of women dedicated to making a difference! We are looking for a diverse and dynamic group of women devoted supporting the children and families of ACH. Women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join and participate in the program. Our target population includes women ages 25 and above who are passionate about community service.
- Engage women in the community
- Create a social outlet for members to bond & get involved
- Provide mission-focused service events to benefit ACH
- Prepare members to be advocates in the fight against child abuse & neglect
In an effort to grow membership, dues have been waived this year.
