We wanted to share a story with our community, from a client. (We respect our families privacy, and she told us that we could. 🙂 )

********WORTH THE READ!********

- We had someone contact us the other day, saying that they saw one of our posts that was shared by one of their friends, on Facebook.

They didn’t know our agency existed, and were excited that they heard about us, because they were feeling overwhelmed, with regard to their current situation.

We talked about the families needs, and it sounds like we will be able to help them SIGNIFICANTLY, to offset the costs of caring for these multiple little kids, unexpectedly- Right before Christmas.

The client was very tearful throughout the conversation and once we told her she qualified for our services, you could hear the sigh of relief being lifted from her voice, knowing there was support out there for her.

These innocent children don’t ask to be put in the situations that they unfortunately get put into, and the families, friends and community members who take them in ….DONT HAVE TO.

But they do, because “all children are our children”. And we want them to feel love, safety, and support as we do our own kids.

So, thank you for doing what you all do, to keep these kids safe, and also by helping us spread the word about our agency, and please keep sharing our posts… because the best way to get us ”out there” is word of mouth.… and who knows, maybe by sharing, YOUR “share”, will reach the next person who will be calling us to inquire. ❤️❤️

And If anyone asks, the only thing they need to qualify is to make the phone call to us, we got it from there. There isn’t a wait… there isn’t a lengthy application process… it’s literally a phone call with most of the time, the needs being met that same day.

Huuuuuge shout out to Stephenson National Bank & Trust - SNBT for nominating us to be the non profit they picked for their “jeans for greens” program, where they “dress down for a good cause.

They raised $960.00 for us during this event, which we were able to add to our savings account for the ongoing needs of the kids we serve.

We are so appreciative, when our local community reaches out to help our cause; because fundraising on our own, is a lot of work. So - when agencies do something like this for us, it’s so awesome, to get a short break 🙂.

We love what we do, and would not change it for the world. So thank you for helping us, and continuing to support us, in whatever ways you do.

There is so much more to behaviour than most people think. Children don’t try to upset us, there is usually something behind it. They are communicating their need through behaviour. If we look behind the behaviour we can see a child who is doing the best they can.
