When children first come into foster care, they often spend many hours at the state office while workers diligently try to find them a safe home. The projects listed below are ways we would like to involve the community in caring for these precious children.
Operation First Response:
One Heart will provide a Snack Shack with snacks and drinks for
the children. The Snack Shack will be replenished on a monthly
basis or as needed.
Individually wrapped snacks & drinks
Children or teens can pick from the Treasure Chest, full of new
stuffed animals, coloring books and small toys, to help reduce
the trauma of leaving a birth parent.
Coloring books, Journals & Sketch pads for Kids & Teens
Colored Pencils & Crayons
New small Stuffed Animals/Dolls
Small Toys/Balls, Playing Cards, Marbles, Jacks, etc.
DVD Player/Headphone Drive:
We would like to provide personal DVD players, headphones,
and DVDs for the children or teens to watch a movie as they wait
for a home to be found.
Personal DVD players, New or Used DVDs, Headphones
When a foster child turns 18 years old and has not been adopted,
he/she “ages out” of the foster care system. Many 18 year old
foster children are still in high school, but state financial support
either stops altogether or is greatly reduced. Project Normalcy
seeks to give these kids a “normal” senior year by funding senior
expenses such as their ring, pictures, announcements, etc.
Financial support (tax deductible)
