Sometimes foster children in group homes aren't able to go "home" to celebrate during the holidays. For 90 kids in one group home, we're bringing the celebration to them! We're so excited about our Celebrations4Kids event happening Christmas Day and so thankful for all the donors, from the anonymous group giving funds to pay for the food to Publix providing a gift card for the cake to the Orlando Magic providing tickets to the game on Dec. 26! And each child will receive a duffel to call their own!
A big thanks to Urban Surf 4 Kids for helping with this celebration and to Shamele Jenkins and the Miami Dade County Foster/Adoptive Parent Association for hosting a Celebrations4Kids event in Miami a few weeks ago. Our hearts are full because of the generosity of our partners and supporters like them.
Happy Holidays everyone...

Such an amazing story and now Albert Wilson is giving back by providing scholarships to foster children who don't age out but still need help paying for college.
"I have the chance, even the obligation, to show kids that where you come from doesn’t have to determine where you end up. I’m a little nervous, because I’ve never done anything like this before. But I know how much just a little bit of help — and a little bit of luck — can turn someone’s life around."

The Annie E. Casey Foundation says foster parents are being routinely left out of key decisions -- and changing that would help foster kids heal and reunite with their families.

#ThankfulThursday: We are very thankful for our student #volunteers! From putting up signs at the walks to unpacking boxes to distributing duffels at events, they have been tremendous in serving their peers in #fostercare. These kids are our future #leaders and we are proud to see their commitment and sacrifice in making this world a better place.
