Brandon and Corina stepped forward to help three children, ages 10, 14 and 15. He tells us the kids battled homelessness while their parents continued to abuse drugs. The three boys and girls were in need of a safe home. This is what fostering is all about – providing refuge to children who have been abused and neglected.
Adding three youngsters to your household is challenging on its own, even without the pressures of figuring out how to accommodate their most basic needs. Arizona Helping Hands took care of those things for Brandon and Corina. The support that we provided made the path easier.
Brandon wrote that he never would have imagined personally utilizing the assistance of a charity such as ours. He expressed heartfelt appreciation to us for continuing our mission to provide crucial items to children in foster care. He knows how difficult it is to foster and the importance of the work we do every day.
Brandon expressed his appreciation for others who foster on a social media post. “I extend my love and admiration. Thank you for your heart and passion to help children overcome bad situations.”
You can never know when you might be in need of a helping hand. Every day children are removed from unsafe environments and a search begins to find them a safe place to land. It is foster parents who are asked to change their lives to make sure this can happen.
Remember when you find yourself fostering a child, even if it’s at a moment’s notice, Arizona Helping Hands will be here to support you and to walk beside you on your journey. We have provided cribs and beds, too.
