Do you remember your 18th birthday?
All donations will be matched up to $25,000. Thank you in advance for your consideration and continued support of our youth.
One of our very own will celebrate her Big 18th birthday this New Year’s Eve. The transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency can be challenging for any young person, but youth in foster care, like Diana, do not have the safety nets or support system that other youth enjoy, making her transition challenges that much greater.
YOU CAN HELP US CHANGE THAT!
Your gift today will help A Kid’s Place give young people like Diana the skills and support they need for a successful transition to adulthood, providing Independent Living classes, financial and job training, adult mentors and life experiences that will give them the best chance for success as they age out of the foster care system
A Kid’s Place of Tampa Bay, Inc. embraces the belief that all children have the right to grow up safe, healthy, and fulfilled in families that love and nurture them. The live-in House Parent Model is the cornerstone of our program, allowing brothers and sisters to live together in a healthy, nurturing environment. Family togetherness provides a feeling of safety and comfort, but each child is also provided an individualized plan to best meet his or her needs. For these children, A Kid’s Place offers a safe environment until a more permanent placement can be provided.
THANK YOU! We met our match!
At A Kid’s Place, education is of the greatest importance, and we are excited to be adding an Education Center to our Toddler, Pre-K, and Hillsborough County Classrooms. The Education Center will be a dedicated space for children to do their homework, receive one-on-one tutoring, participate in online classes and virtual school, and write resumes to apply for jobs. This space will provide a quiet area for kids to focus, study, and excel.
Special thanks to our community partners and donors who helped with in-kind and monetary support to help us meet our goal of $75,000 for our computer lab! The computers are ordered and we will share pictures the completed room soon!
