Just Like Me
Our Just Like Me activity fund gives kids who have experienced significant trauma a sense of normalcy by enjoying things like riding a bike, playing little league or going to the water park with friends. These experiences can be costly, and not all families can afford them. That is why our Just Like Me fund is so important, as it allows kids in our care a chance to quite simply, be kids!

This truly unique exchange program provides medical equipment to foster children who need immediate access to medical supplies and equipment while they are waiting for approval from the state.
