Cards of Hope

Bring a smile to a child's face when you drop a greeting card in the mail. Children in foster care often feel forgotten, especially around their birthdays. Through our Cards of Hope program, we are able to send cards to group homes and facilities that house youth who are separated from loved ones. Throughout the year, we send cards for birthdays and "just because."
