Having a Voice Gives Foster Families a Bright Future
Foster families embody the true meaning of giving every day. They give love, support, a nurturing home, and – perhaps most importantly – hope for a brighter tomorrow. ReVision Gives Back proudly recognized Every Kid Deserves A Voice during the month of August. This nonprofit’s mission to advocate for children in the foster care system is changing the lives of children in our community.
Recognizing A Need
Every Kid Deserves A Voice began after a local couple decided to foster a child and quickly realized there was minimal support in place for foster parents and children to build a strong family unit. The couple began reaching out to church groups and organizations to recruit volunteers. Volunteers began filling gift baskets for new foster families with games and other fun activities to encourage connectivity and conversation. Sending birthday cards to foster kids filled with signatures from volunteers is also a favorite activity that uplifts spirits.
Every Kid Deserves A Voice Board Members and volunteers continue to work with government officials to improve the foster system for children and foster parents. They are committed to providing advocacy for the children who have to endure the difficult child welfare system.
Giving Foster Families A Bright Future
The ReVision Gives Back donation will help Every Kid Deserves A Voice fill gift baskets to bring fun to the homes of foster families. Other helpful donations include postage stamps for mailing greeting cards, gift cards, and basket items featured on the organization’s Amazon Wish List.
