Realities for former foster youth:
We offer something else: HOPE
Every year, we help more than 10,000 kids and families in Northeast Florida. We're determined to create brighter futures for our children. And we succeed. We change lives. We create families ... like Lenny and Candie's.
Longtime foster parents Lenny and Candie have cared for special-needs children for more than a decade. Some, says Lenny, you just plain fall in love with.
“They’re wonderful kids with a misfortune that isn’t any fault of their own. They know they could’ve been left someplace,” Lenny says. “Now they’re home. Now they have a family.” Find out how Lenny and Candie grew their special family through adoption.
See how we change lives.
Step up. Give today and turn the life around for a child in need.
Become an advocate. Take a stand on issues that affect kids' lives.
We have many opportunities for individuals and groups. We're always looking for help, from working with our kids to beautifying our campus. Get involved now!
