At this time of great anxiety and uncertainty, Forever Homes for Foster Kids wants to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for your continued help.
We include in our prayers the donors who have pulled together in the true American spirit of reaching out to those around us. I know you are facing challenges you never imagined – and worrying about the health of your family and loved ones, having to work remotely or perhaps even suddenly having to homeschool your kids. I speak for everyone here in wishing that you and your family stay safe and healthy during this coronavirus pandemic.
We also pray daily for the needs of the foster children. Presently their needs are still great, possibly greater. Thousands of foster children are living in group homes. Others are having to live in hotel rooms or in foster care agency offices. In some places, roughly 50% of foster kids have lost their jobs and are struggling to pay for food, utilities and basic living expenses. If you know a child who is worried or confused during this time, just imagine how foster children feel who continue to be separated from their families, their friends, classmates and teachers.
The very nature of our work and, consequently, our continued success for these children depends on our ability to work with a wide assortment of private and public entities. Everyone is important at each and every step along the way. Our success is your success. Thank you for working with us.
