Do you have a business or professional service that foster children can benefit from? Do you have tickets to an upcoming family event that a foster family would enjoy? Whether it is music lessons or orthodontics, our children often need services and programs that are not supported by the state and federal monies that sustain our operation. Foster parents will benefit from donated tickets to amusement parks, museums, concerts or tickets for family activities. If you have a service that you would like to donate, please contact Suzanne Baker at (954) 873-1832.
