Based in Macomb County, Friends of Foster Kids is a non-profit organization that provides basic necessities for foster children who have been removed from their homes and placed in temporary housing or shelters. In addition to basic necessities, the organization provides back to school supplies and brand-new gifts during the holidays. Of the 900 children in foster care in Macomb County, many children have never experienced the joy of receiving a gift at Christmas. In a season for family, granting a child’s wish speaks softly of unconditional love from people who care.
Friends of Foster Kids also lends a hand to those who have aged out of foster care at age 20, and are still in need of assistance. The organization provides some of the basic needs for these individuals to live independently.
The foster care system can be a confusing and sometimes disheartening place, but through Friends of Foster Kids and network of passionate volunteers, foster children are given a brighter future, a sense of normalcy and belonging.
