Make a gift to help with Hurricane Irma recovery

Your gift will ensure we can meet the immediate and urgent needs of children in our care and foster parents around the state who are counting on us.

Many of our friends and partners are asking, “What can I do?” to help with the recovery for Hurricane Irma. And we are SO grateful you have asked. With evacuations for children across the state, massive trees uprooted at many of our sites, power outages to contend with and shortages of some basic supplies, here is how you can “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2, NIV)

 

Give

Make a financial gift to help cover the costs of cleanup efforts and evacuations. Every dollar will ensure we meet the immediate and essential needs of children in our care, foster parents, Brave Moms and more.
