What We Do

Kids Events

We host events for local children in the dependency system to create memories and moments where they can just be kids. Smiles can be rare on children who have experienced trauma, and we are all about creating more of those moments.

Opportunities

We create opportunities for local foster children to play on sports teams, take dance classes, go to summer camps, and pursue their passions. These opportunities create stories in their life that build resilience so they can rise above their circumstances.

Resource

We are a resource to local foster families and out of home caregivers to support the children in their care. We don’t want these kids to be without anything so we provide bags, toiletries, books, and toys to those in need.

436 Stories (and counting)
Every year nearly 500,000 children

are impacted by abuse, neglect and trauma and spend time in our nation’s foster care system.

Rewiring the Brain Through Experience
Cells that fire together, wire together.

Every experience, whether it be a Christmas party or learning to hit a baseball, excite certain brain cells and strengthen them.

Helping Florida's Little Ones
Florida is home to 682,620 infants and toddlers

About 50% of these children live in homes considered low income or in poverty.

Every 6 minutes, a baby or toddler in America is removed from his/her parents’ care because of alleged abuse or neglect

(U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for children and Families, Children’s Bureau, 2016)
