Partnering for safe and healthy communities.
We have been blown away by the generosity of supporters like you throughout the past few months! Check out the many ways you have helped:

A Hard-Won Tenacity:
The Andersons’ Story

Annie and Eric Anderson began their foster parent journey 13 years ago, and since, then they have made a huge impact on the lives of many children. Their story is one of love, heartbreak, growth and strength. They show us how even the smallest of actions can make a huge difference in someones life.

It's National Safety Month!

When we are able to take care of ourselves and manage our own emotions and stress, we are able to more effectively and lovingly care for those who rely on us. Here are some self-care tips you can use to alleviate stress:
  • Spend time outside or go for a walk;
  • Think of a peaceful place or meditate;
  • Shake, move your body or dance;
  • Sleep — relax your body and mind; or
  • Talk it out.

Remember, before you can care for someone else, you have to take care of yourself. Make it a priority.
School Supply Drive

Whether heading to kindergarten or starting community college, the youth in our care are gearing up for the 2020-2021 school year. These youth may be attending a new school after being placed in a foster home, attending one of our therapeutic schools to address their trauma, or may be pursuing post-secondary education after aging out of foster care. A backpack filled with new school supplies can help set these students up for success.

We hope you will consider donating school supplies to help make this school year the best yet for even more children.
