Upcoming Projects to Fund
We are raising money to pay for our monthly operating costs, which includes rent, internet, and any other expense needed to keep our organization running! We are a 501c3 not-for-profit, charity organization. We have no paid staff, everyone running our organization is an unpaid volunteer, even our board members! All donations go directly to keeping our doors open, so we can serve the community, providing items free of charge to families in need!
HOW WE CAN HELP
Our organization helps reduce the financial strain a new placement can place on a foster family by freeing up funds that would otherwise be used to fullfill these immediate needs. These needs are not always met immediately or in full by the State and that is where we step in. Meeting these needs allow foster parents to be able to use the funds saved to help the children adapt to their new home life in other ways. We also accommodate families going through crisis situations, as we understand times can get tough. If you feel our services meet your needs, don't hesitate in reaching out to us to see if you qualify for our program!
