Actor Niles Fitch, an ACH alumnus who plays the teenage Randall on NBC's This Is Us, as A Caring Hand Ambassador will make a special appearance.
The event will take place on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Angel Orensanz Center, 172 Norfolk Street, in Manhattan.
Founder Susan Esposito-Lombardo says, "It is crucial to support small charities like A Caring Hand that have the potential to make a big impact dealing with an issue that is often not acknowledged. At our programs, families learn that they are not alone and have hope for the future."
The goal is to equip families with the right emotional tools to heal. A Caring Hand believes they can be helped to have joy in their lives again. Niles Fitch and his family know it changed their lives. His mother discovered A Caring Hand following the death of Niles's father in 2013 and went on to participate in weekly support groups.
