Soccer & Bras & Basketball--oh my!

We've been VERY busy today! Getting ready for our Advisory Committee meeting tomorrow, making new tutor matches for foster kids & fulfilling Project Self-Esteem requests. We helped pay for 2 little girls in foster care to play soccer, covered expenses for a teen girl in foster care to have a few specially fitted bras & talked to a foster mom about helping her 2 foster kids play basketball & participate in a hunters safety course.

All of these things are Vital to the well-being of children. Involvement in extracurricular activities makes a child 3x more likely to have a G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher (U.S. Department of Education)! Imagine the impact on a child that has been abused or neglected--it's incredible!

We are so proud to be improving the quality of life for the over 1,020 children currently in foster care from Greene County, Missouri. Thanks to all our supporters, donors & volunteers for making it possible:-)
