The State can only provide the basic necessities for foster children. 

Without the financial support from our nonprofit organization, many

of our children  have minimal access to:

 

 

  • Specialized Medical Treatment                             

  • Dental or Orthodontic Treatment     
  • Eye Care
  • Needed Clothing
  • Tutoring  or School Supplies 
  • Or perhaps a week at a summer camp   
  • Psychological/Psychosocial Evaluations/Assessments
  • Without immediate prevention and/or intervention, a child may wait weeks or months for a mental health professional to determine appropriate treatment modalities for the most traumatic time of his/her life.
