In addition to helping his young patients develop stronger relationships and the skills they need to succeed in life, psychiatrist Neal Mazer, MD, MPH, supports several charities related to child welfare and suicide prevention. Dr. Neal Mazer presently sits on the board of Pact.
A nonprofit multicultural organization, Pact seeks to help adopted children of color at every stage of their lives. The organization helps find homes for children and then provides ongoing education and support to them and their families. Every year, Pact runs multiple events and workshops, including the Pact Family Camp.
The 2013 Pact Family Camp will take place from July 3 through July 7 in Tahoe City, California. The event will bring together adopted children of color for time to reflect and connect as well as for traditional camp activities such as sports, art, and recreation. Also offering programming for families of adopted children, the camp provides workshops and presentations on race, parenting, and adoption. Non-adopted siblings are welcome to participate in the camp.
