Do you have 4 hours a month to change the life of a child in care? The Foster Care Support Foundation's Hope 4 Tomorrow Mentoring Program (H4T) is seeking volunteers in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Dekalb, Forsyth, Fulton and Gwinnett counties to mentor youth in care aged 12 years old and older. H4T is a very flexible program. Visitation dates, times, and locations are chosen by the mentors and mentees themselves allowing for even the busiest individuals to find time in their schedules. Mentors will spend time with their mentees at a public facility of their choice. The activity choices are virtually endless! Whether you enjoying hiking, visiting museums, building robots, playing a sport, cultural activities, seeing a film, grabbing a bite to eat, bowling, taking cooking or art classes, or all of the above, you will find multitudes of activities to enjoy with your mentee. Many of these activities also have virtual options.

About Foster Care Support Foundation, INC

Location:

115 Mansell Place, Roswell, GA 30076, US

Mission Statement

To strengthen the ability of foster families to meet the needs of their foster children by implementing a community based resource and education that can decrease the need for institutionalized care

Description

Our donation center gives free clothes, toys and safe infant equipment to foster children ages preemie infants to 21 years old that are being raised on up to $30.00 per day. There are over 15,000 children in Georgia's foster care system raised on the above mentioned per-diem.

That number does not count the hundreds of thousands of children raised by grandparents or relatives, taking in their relatives child to keep them from entering the foster care system. Most of these families receive $0 of compensation which endangers the stability of the family while they try to keep their family conected. Due mostly to drugs, the opioid crisis and jail time, there are about 110,000 relaitive famiies, mostly Grandparents raising almost 300,000 children that are not theirs without the biological parent present in the home. By donating funds or your time to process these donated items, you help provide basic care needed items for this population of children to help them through their time of crisis. Sponsor a child for $25 or $50 per month to make sure they have items our kids take for granted every day. Give a displaced child hope for the future.
