Why It Matters
An average of 25 children are taken from their families and placed in foster care, each day, in Arizona.
Many of these kids arrive in care with only the clothes on their backs. They experience immense trauma as their sense of normalcy is stripped from them.
There are 400 of these kids in Yavapai County. 400 kids, at a disadvantage statistically who just need a little extra attention, care, and help.
When the harsh winds of trauma blow out the candles of innocence, it’s up to us to reignite the flame. We do this by helping foster kids be able to do everything a non-foster child would have the opportunity to do. Everything from having a bike to ride, going to prom, to having their first birthday party, and much more.
Supporting a child is changing a life.
