Helping Foster Care Children

When we got the call that an entire family was being considered for Foster Care, it got our attention. Since we have a MFG officer who was in the Foster Care system, we have been attuned to the difficulty children have when they are taken from their home and are required to live with strangers.

Many of these kids are not able to take any of their possessions except for the clothes they are wearing.

In this case, six children lost their mother to breast cancer and were now homeless. Five of them were under the age of 10 years old.

Because we have so many generous donors, we are able to invest in clothing, hygiene products, toys and educational items to enrich children. By doing so, these essentials become opportunities for kids who need them and were able to provide nearly everything a child needs.

A few months later, we had the opportunity to meet these children in person. The youngest, Jordan, a two-year old girl, ran to me and hugged me like I was her last refuge. It was heartwarming to see the kids we helped. It is a memory that will stay with me forever and it serves to remind me that what we do for the children of our communities is important. These are actual lives we are changing, not just statistics.
