What a summer! From water parks, theme parks and zoos to summer camps, football camps and family trips to our Nation's Capitol, our kids and families created memories to last a life time! Place of Hope is unwavering about providing family summer vacations for the youth and children in our care. Not only are they having fun and bonding as a family, but also learning about so many great things across our Nation. Creating new memories help our youth heal from their traumas, find self-worth, write new futures and be inspired!
Just as fast as summer came, it went! Our kiddos are all set to go back to school, and thanks to several community supporters, they have all the school supplies they need to hit the books! Thank you to J.P. Morgan Wealth Management Palm Beach Gardens, Seacoast Utility Authority, Smith Farm and United Franchise Group for hosting drives for our kiddos!

Did you know when it comes to education, on average foster children are two years behind their peers as a result of their trauma or inability to attend school?

Our youth's education is a priority. Each child who comes into care at Place of Hope has their own personalized case plan which includes education, enrichment, health and wellness, as well as life skills development. Our youth are shattering statistics and we are blessed to be on their journey to success with them!
The KidSanctuary Campus in West Palm Beach has been a place of refuge, hope and healing for over 133 children who have suffered abuse and neglect. Founder, Connie Frankino, has lead a crusade to create a family style campus with beautiful cottages for children in the local foster care system. In 2009, knowing to be successful, the campus would require a team of highly qualified professionals to oversee, run and manage all of the programs. Connie reached out to Place of Hope.

With Place of Hope running the programs, Connie hit the ground running growing the ten acre campus from one cottage serving six girls, to a total of four cottages serving 24 youth at a time (two boys cottages, two girls cottages). As of August 1, 2022, after well over a decade of serving as the Founder and Chairman of the Board of KidSanctuary, Connie and the Board of Directors gifted the entire campus and its ownership to Place of Hope.

We are honored and grateful to receive this campus to continue the legacy Connie created. To learn more about the KidSanctuary Campus and how you can support it, email CharlesB@placeofhope.com.
With campuses in Palm Beach Gardens, Lake Park, West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Stuart, no matter where you are in Palm Beach or the Treasure Coast, there are ways for you to get involved with Place of Hope! If you have not toured our campuses, what are you waiting for?

One of the best ways to bless our foster families is with family meal donations! With school starting up, these are needed now especially. Like many families, our cottage parents are managing busy schedules for six kids including family visits, therapy, school, tutoring, mentoring, extra curricular activities, team sports and more! Donate a family meal to serve 8-10 people. This can be homemade, store bought or ordered & delivered! Schedule a meal donation today and bless a foster family!
