Increasing the number of beds for foster children awaiting placement by establishing a temporary home-style shelter. Our goal is to open our first home in DFW by the end of 2021 and expend to other regions in Texas, facing shortage of homes.
Now serving children without placement thanks to the generosity of our DFW community! Thank you for helping us start a wonderful year 2022!
Special thank you to:
Foster Kids Charity is partnering with Child Protective Services to establish a temporary home for foster children who need emergency placement. The house will have six bunk beds (max 12 children) and provide a temporary home for children and teens up to 18 years of age until they are placed with a foster family.
Foster Kids Charity's CEO, Michelle Brown, has found that facilities all over DFW and Texas regions are struggling to find placements for foster children - especially teenagers. The crisis is caused by a shortage of foster homes and placements available. This is a long-term and ongoing issue in DFW.
Between placements, foster children sleep in cots in Child Protective Services offices, which do not have basic living utilities such as showers or kitchens. Foster Kids Charity wants to provide a real living space for children and teens to call home until they find a more permanent one.
We graciously ask you to support this project and help us provide foster kids and teens safe housing. Foster Kids Charity thank you for your generosity in supporting our efforts. Contributions can be made via the link below or on our home page www.fosterkidscharity.org.
