Children’s Place Association
Foster Care and Adoption Program
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
The grant is for transitional services and supplies (food, medications, clothing, & personal items) used within the Foster Care and Adoption Program for ten children being placed in stable, nurturing foster homes until they can return to their biological families or are adopted. The program serves children with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, seizure disorder, diabetes, substance exposure, shaken baby syndrome, heart ailments of complications of prematurity or HIV infection. All of the children come from predominantly low-income families living in communities with little access to social services.
