CRESTVIEW — Children in Crisis has extra support for its programs benefiting at-risk children.

The Emerald Coast Foundationdonated $35,000 — proceeds from its ECF Boat Week and Poker Run — to the nonprofit organization.

"The support by the Emerald Coast Foundation really made a difference in the lives of our at-risk children," Ken Hair, CIC president and CEO, said. "2015 has been a tough year for finding the necessary funds to provide a home to our children at the CIC Neighborhood, and their support will help us to stay open and operating."

The CIC Neighborhood in Fort Walton Beach provides emergency shelter for children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice, and offers housing to help with foster home shortage.
