We want to continue to provide the safest and highest level of care to the vulnerable child victims of abuse, abandonment and neglect. Every child deserves the chance to feel like a kid. We want to make sure each child's needs are fulfilled. These children have been thrown into the dependency court system through no fault of their own and we want to give them the things they require, right now, to be happy and hopeful!
