Foster Care Month- How you can make a Difference for a Foster Child
May is Foster Care month. For those families who are able to foster children: Thank you. Not everyone can take on the responsibility of fostering a child, but anyone can help support the fostering community.
Together We Rise is a nonprofit committed to providing travel bags with goodies for children in the foster system. Many children carry their belongings in trash bags from home to home. Together We Raise gives them a bag with helpful items to get them to their forever home.
