Often we think of orphans as children who live in third world countries, those whose images we see on television or in the newspaper. But they’re not just around the globe, they’re also right here in our own backyard. On any given day in South Florida, there are three to four thousand “temporary orphans” in foster care. Imagine how children must feel when they’re removed from their homes, often with nothing more than the clothes on their back and a garbage bag filled with whatever they were able to quickly pack. These children are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and showered with love. So whether it’s a child who is a victim of abuse or neglect, a teenager rejected by his family, or a young girl who is pregnant and alone, from the moment they come into our care, we provide support, encouragement, and direction. Our Vision: A Home for Every Child in Crisis Core Values: Sacrifice::: Serving with the heart of God,whatever the cost. Perseverance::: Never giving up on a child. Integrity::: In everything, above reproach. Compassion::: Walking with children on their path to redemption. Excellence::: Giving our best to those in need.

Today we're acknowledging both Bath Fitter and Paris Furnishings, Inc. in Margate as our Partners of the Week! We are so grateful to them for generously donating many of the materials needed for a bathroom renovation at our His Caring Place Aftercare home. Take a look at the "before and after" photos!

For children and teens in the foster care system, being separated from your family is hard enough without your siblings. At 4KIDS, we aim to lessen the trauma of removal by placing siblings together. Between our residential family-style homes, such as GirlsPlace, and our traditional foster homes, we're doing our best to ensure that no kid has to walk this journey alone.

Since 2014, 4KIDS has been one of the charity recipients of Publix's Food For All campaign. The funds raised are used to support programs, like 4KIDS. For the past 4 years, 4KIDS has received generous donations from Publix because of the success of this campaign. From now until November 10, participate at your local Publix by purchasing contribution cards in the amounts of $1, $3, or $5 at checkout. We appreciate your support during the Food for All campaign!

This week's Partner of the Week is Dr. Sara Pizano. Dr. Pizano has been a faithful donor for multiple 4KIDS events. Additionally, she is a fierce advocate for kids in crisis and is leveraging her national platform to also speak on the need and to increase involvement in helping kids in foster care, aging out of foster care and homeless pregnant teens. She is also a respite foster parent and is hosting our first Party With A Purpose in Broward this year.

Becoming a 4KIDS Defender means that every month you give, you are protecting children in their most vulnerable and desperate times of need.

4KIDS Treasure Coast had a great event on Saturday at the Inaugural Clay 4KIDS Sporting Challenge!

Thank you to everyone who made the 2018 SOSI Prom so special for our residents. It was truly a fun evening filled with laughter, music, dancing, and memories.

We were so honored to be able to host the District managers and Store managers from Broward and Palm Beach Walgreens stores at our Family Room last week. We were able to meet their needs so they could conduct a training for their managers in our Family Room.
