WHERE DOES YOUR $ GO?

 

Children in foster care, and those who are at-risk of being placed in foster care, are supported by state and federal funding to meet their basic needs.  The Fund for Alexandria's Child and YOU, our contributors, support their healthy growth and development by enriching their lives. The flexibility of The Fund, combined with oversight, makes the money you donate valuable beyond its dollar amount.  Each specific expenditure is overseen by a social worker for a particular child.

 

$274 - Personal Supplies and Toiletries

Off to camp are 27 children, ages 7-14.  They are all either in foster care, receiving treatment services or participating in community enrichment activities. The kids are required to bring toothbrush, toothpaste, shower soap, bug spray, sun block, a flashlight and other necessities that their parents cannot afford in their budgets.

 

$176 - Life Book

In preparation for his adoption, 11-year-old Johnny completed his life book, with his foster, soon to be adoptive, parents.  Scrapbooking supplies and duplication made the book look professional as well as moving to all who see it.

 

$810 - Taekwondo Classes for 6 Months

Davey is 10, full of energy, and the only boy in a houseful of girls.  This focused physical and mental exercise is the perfect afterschool activity for a youngster with too much time on his hands.

 

$26 - Cell Phone Minutes

With the ability to make a phone call, the mother of baby Jackson can be sure she can comply with the court-ordered safety plan to call police if the father of her son tries to contact them when he is released from jail.

 

Thank you to all our contributors.  You can see the difference YOU make!
