Vanessa Behan’s vision is to provide immediate refuge for children and support to strengthen families. This evolved from the tragic story of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died from child abuse injuries at the age of two. Following her death, a group of local businesspeople established this amazing organization so that parents would have a safe place to bring their children in the face of crises.
Kaspien delivered ten cases of diapers and several cases of baby wipes to the Vanessa Behan clinic while employees donated $600 directly to the crisis center during the diaper drive. Through our efforts, many children were able to receive the care they needed.
We understand that parenting can be a difficult job, and incredibly more so in times of crisis. With many of our employees as parents themselves, we were proud to offer our help. Together with Vanessa Behan, Kaspien employees contributed to a safe, confidential place for anyone who may be experiencing a crisis and needs a helping hand so they can have a healthier, happier life.
