Help honor male caregivers of youth in our mentoring program

Why we send cards for Father’s Day

Several of the youth that Braid serves have spent time in foster care and are now being raised by relatives. One of our youth is being raised by a great-uncle, and one of our youth has been reunited with their biological father.

As a special initiative of our Cards of Hope program, we are collecting Father’s Day cards for these two gentlemen who are working so hard on a daily basis to keep these children from spending more time in foster care. These families are being supported by wraparound services from our partner organizations as they rebuild their relationships and learn how to keep their families intact. A simple word of encouragement would be a bright spot of hope for them this Father’s Day.

Please send Father’s Day cards to us by June 9. To read more about how to send these cards and others Cards of Hope all year long, visit our Cards of Hope page.

How to send cards:

1. Choose a card (it doesn’t have to be a Father’s Day card specifically but can be any encouraging card). Write a nice message inside. Sign your name.

2. Please leave the envelopes blank and unsealed. We will address them for you.

3. Put your card(s) in a larger envelope and mail them to:
Braid Mission
191 Golden Gate Ave.
San Francisco CA 94102
– Including stamps with your cards is not required but much appreciated.

4. We must receive your cards by June 9 to get them in the mail by Father’s Day.

5. We take care of the rest! We will address the envelopes and mail them individually to each caregiver. If you would like to help with the cost of postage for this project, you can make a donation here.
