Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children in need don't have enough safe and loving homes. Sibling groups are often seperated or sent to group homes when the System of Care doesn't have a home for them.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Family Advocate Program

Foster families and other caregivers often feel alone and unsupported, which often leads to them closing their home to children who need their care. Our Family Advocates are local volunteers who are trained to help caregivers and contact them on a regular basis to make sure they are receiving the support and personal touch they need to continue caring for children in need.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We aim to support and equip caregivers to provide more and better care to children.

We offer practical solutions like a centralized resource hub for caregivers, parent success navigation, and research to identify where the System of Care fails to meet children and caregiver's needs.

Our leadership team has business acumen from years of enterprise and nonprofit experience that gives us the unique ability to utilize existing technology and best practices to help children.

We have goals for each program we launch and track how many families and children have been impacted.

In the first 90 days of our organization, we identified major needs of the Hillsborough System of Care, partnered with local agencies to develop solutions, provided guidance to help caregivers of hundreds of children get more food to feed their families, and created a Parent Success Guidebook which guides parents through the process of how to get reunited with their children.
