Who We Are

Strong Kids Safe Kids (SKSK) is a life-enriching community composed of volunteers, community agencies & businesses who come together to help develop strong, safe and healthy families. We know it takes strong, safe and healthy families to build strong, safe & healthy kids.

Our premiere event, the Annual SKSK Festival of Chemung County focuses on giving families information about community services and safety issues while engaging children in fun activities where they can learn and their parents can learn with them. All Activities at the SKSK festival are FREE for children and their families!!!

Strong Kids Safe Kids began in 1984 as a child ID fingerprinting event sponsored by the Task Force on Children and Families of Chemung County. The event quickly outgrew its original purpose to become a highly effective mechanism for human service and law enforcement agencies, fire departments, and health and education providers to reach out and connect families to information and services to help kids and families be strong and safe in Chemung County. Today the SKSK committee is the Task Force and is committed to hosting the annual SKSK festival and other Community Support Projects to educate and strengthen Chemung County Families.

The Task Force (aka Strong kids Safe Kids) is 501c3 not-for-profit corporation managed by an all volunteer standing committee made up of representatives from local businesses and community organizations; and child advocates. Donations from local businesses, organizations, and grantors help cover the cost of the Annual Strong Kids Safe Kids Festival including but not limited to supplies, marketing/PR efforts, festival activities and entertainment fees, insurance, promotional items/giveaways; and other community support programs/events.
