ORGANIZATION: WeCare Family Connections

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

WeCare is looking for an experience grant writer which can help write grants for our Family Literacy & Engagement programs - WeCare imPact.

We believe that spending quality time with the "littles" in your life provides exceptional benefits. The research confirms what many parents and educators already know instinctively, "The simple act of reading aloud together helps create a lasting emotional connection, stimulates a child's cognitive development, and lays the groundwork for a lifelong love of reading and learning."

imPACT is a multigenerational family literacy and engagement program committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. The program provides participants in any type or level of the foster care system with access to high quality in-person and virtual read-alouds of early childhood books (PreK-3) relate to social, emotional, and academic learning and extension activities in English.

Adult participants are concurrently enrolled in interactive parent engagement courses for grades PreK-12, delivered via a flexible mobile learning platform, in their heritage language. All classes are led by trained, bilingual-bicultural instructors skilled in bridging cultures.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Is To Increase Diversity and Inclusion by Actively Recruiting and Supporting Black, Brown & LGBTQ+ Foster Homes within the Child Welfare System.

Description

WeCare is the only Child Placement Agency in the State of Florida, currently Found and Lead by a Woman of Color and Foster Parent. At WeCare, we believe that Every Child Deserves a Loving and Caring Home AND that Every Loving and Caring Home Deserves a Child. That is Why Our Mission Is To Increase Diversity and Inclusion by Actively Recruiting and Supporting Black, Brown & LGBTQ+ Foster Homes within the Child Welfare System. Expanding access to licensure for minority communities will dramatically reduce sibling separation and the number of children in group homes and greatly increase stability and reunification.

WeCare Family Connections is built on the first-hand experiences of foster parents. Their professional backgrounds in child welfare and juvenile rehabilitation provided insights into the system, but the real learning happened when they actually opened their own home and hearts to two sibling groups of 10 children total at the same time! At WeCare, we do more than talk about foster care, we actively engage in caring for children and families and seek new families to help us close the gap in available, qualified, and caring homes.

We're dedicated towards helping place children in distress, in safe and caring homes within their own communities. By doing so, they can maintain their connections and/or preserve their culture and heritage. We recruit, train, license, and support multicultural foster families, specializing in sibling placement and Large Family Homes.
