Most people view Collin County as being immune from the familial strife so common in other communities. But the fact is, on any given day, some 250 children in Collin County are currently involved in the foster care system.
The State of Texas actively recruits loving families to raise these kids into productive members of society, but the state only provides so much. Further, most foster homes in Collin County are not orphanages or businesses. Rather, they’re the homes of hard-working, loving families who open their doors and their hearts to take on a child in need.
While the state provides nominal support to cover things like food and some healthcare for children in foster care, it is not in their budget to help foster kids live comparable lives to their peers.
We all remember the joys of our youth. They include fond memories of playing baseball with our friends, going to summer camp, playing an instrument in band, or taking swimming lessons. But all of these activities come with a cost. Our mission is to help supplement those costs so that foster kids are able to experience the typical joys that other kids in Collin County take for granted.
