We are very proud to have received a renewed $2,000 grant award from the Ozarks Health Advocacy Foundation to provide physical and medical self-esteem enhancing items for foster children through our Project Self-Esteem program!

Potential items we can fund include: eye glasses, contact lenses, eye exams, partial braces down payments, dental costs not covered by Medicaid, infant circumcision costs not covered by Medicaid and developmental disability equipment. All items are for children placed into foster care from Greene County, MO and must be requested by the child's foster care Caseworker.

Adopt-a-Teen for Christmas

It's never too early to start planning for Christmas! Last year we helped over 100 local foster children receive Christmas gifts--kids who otherwise would have received little or nothing under their tree!

We need your help to accomplish this again for Christmas 2011. Christmas gifts are delivered discretely by the foster child's Caseworker--which means no embarrassment for the child!

Email Sondra at to "adopt" a teenager in foster care for Christmas. It's easy & fulfilling. It's also a great way to involve your family in a holiday service project. Please help us give these special children reasons to smile this Christmas. They've already been through so much & they need our help.

*If you'd like to make a monetary donation for this effort (or any other Ambassadors for Children programs), please make check payable to Council of Churches & put Ambassadors for Children in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to Ambassadors for Children, 627 N. Glenstone, Springfield, MO 65802. All donations are tax deductible. You may also donate securely online or donate via phone with credit/debit card by calling 417-862-3586 ext. 233 (be sure to designate your gift for Ambassadors for Children).

Thank You!

P.S. We'll also
be hosting our 2nd Annual Gift Wrapping Party to wrap all these gifts before they're delivered to the kids. We wrapped over 500 gifts last year & need volunteer help. If you love to gift wrap, email Sondra at to sign up! Date &
Location pending.
