The children we serve will:

  • Engage in a positive childhood experience

  • Connect with peers

  • Connect with trusted adults

  • Receive services that meet their individualized needs and interests

  • Receive access to positive childhood experiences that the family otherwise would not have been able to reach

  • Have fun!

Short-term Outcomes

Painted Hands

The children we serve will:

  • Develop a healthy sense of mental, social, emotional, and physical well-being

  • Remain stable in placement (*Enhanced well-being contributes to fewer placement disruptions. When placement changes are beyond our control, we pursue all possible opportunities to continue serving the child.)

We continue to be amazed at how positive and powerful childhood activities can be for traumatized children who have had limited opportunities and who have rarely experienced anything uplifting or fun. Stories & testimonials help bring to life the transformative effect these experiences have on children in foster care. They reveal some of the most compelling evidence of our impact.

Gymnast on a Wooden Bar

“Overall she is completely different from when she got to our home. Gymnastics is the first lesson/activity she has ever gotten to try, so she looks forward to it every week! She practices with our daughter all the time in the living room. She even shows me her new bar skills after school. This has had a huge impact on her and on me as a foster parent. Knowing there are people out there that we can partner with to make an impact on these kids. Even if it is just for a season of their lives. It allows them to dream of all the things they can do!”
