Mission Statement

To assist foster children ages 0 to 5 years old with strengthening basic skills needed for successful entrance into Kindergarten, therefore setting them up for a successful future. To provide free short term respite care for foster, adoptive, and kinship families. To show these children futures full of hope and success rather than failure and despair. Together with the YMCA we can build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities.

Description

Provide enrichment activities for abused, neglected children ages 0 to 5 years old, while providing free short term respite care for their foster parents. Activities focus on strengthening school readiness skills and social skills, and include games, stories, arts and crafts, and more. Meanwhile, parents have time to keep appointments, run errands, watch a movie, or simply relax.
