Solving the Crisis
There is an orphan crisis in America today
A baby girl has just been removed from her home…a brother and sister need a safe home to mature and grow…a pregnant young girl has no place to go…and teenagers “age out of foster care” without a home or skills to face the world that beckons.
There is an orphan crisis in America today. Every day 4KIDS brings HOPE to the neediest in our community. Will you join us? Working together, we can solve this problem…one child at a time.
Here’s how 4KIDS works to solve the crisis
4KIDS meets the child’s needs by demonstrating the love of God. Our goal is to protect, provide, and offer permanent solutions for the child and their families so they can have a hope-filled future.
From newborns to 17-year-olds, every child in Broward County who is brought into the Child Welfare system upon being removed from their families due to abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, is given loving shelter and supervision at SafePlace while they await a more permanent placement.
The child placement agencies in Broward and Palm Beach County work with 4KIDS to place the child with a foster care family or at a family-style home that allows siblings to stay together while they await placement in a foster home or with a family member.
When foster children turn 18, they are handed a check as they exit the foster care system. Many have no family, no mentors, and no one to help them reach their educational or career goals. The 4KIDS Independent Living program fills in these gaps by giving these kids a roof over their heads and mentors to help guide them during this next stage of their lives.
4KIDS Safe Families program works to prevent children from going into foster care by providing a secure temporary home for children whose parents are in a crisis situation.
The services 4KIDS provides work because of Partnerships with families, businesses, foundations, churches, and government agencies which are committed to providing community solutions for the modern-day orphan.
