Where Funds Go

Your Gift, Their Future

You can have peace of mind knowing that your donation will be used wisely by an organization that has received numerous accreditations, humanitarian awards, and honors.

Your gift will help children who have suffered incomprehensible trauma heal physical and emotional wounds and mature into caring, healthy, self-reliant adults. As greater numbers of children enter our homes, our surest response is to open our arms and meet their needs in every way we can. It is your donations that make our crucial work possible.
