Sup­port fos­ter chil­dren through Project Christi­na 

For those of you who have pur­chased stuffed toys for “Project Christi­na,” thank you. The need is increas­ing because there are con­sis­tent num­bers of chil­dren that are removed form their home week­ly and big­ger sib­ling groups involved. Social work­ers are now using these toys to calm the chil­dren dur­ing the inter­view process which is extreme­ly trau­mat­ic. You can be assured that your gen­er­ous heart is mak­ing a dif­fer­ence.
