Happy Valentine’s Day!

We are sad to see them go, but so very happy for them.

We are wishing our wonderful Director of Marketing and Development, Shelly the best, as she transitions to staying home to be with her newborn baby, Alistair, and her 2 boys William and Charles. We wouldn’t be where we are without her.

We also wish our Social Media Intern, Susan Wyatt, best wishes as she leaves us to focus on her studies. She brought so much creativity to our team and will be very missed, though we know this is the best for her. Thank you for everything you have done!

Thank you to Carolyn & Steve Roskamp and Dennis & Graci McGillicuddy

We were out at the Bridge a Life race on Saturday (Feb 5th). Supporting our foster care families. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hi. The turnout was AMAZING!

We are thankful to announce a partnership with Grapevine Communications. They will be helping to expand our reach and update our website and marketing so that we can reach more families in need in our area.

The Results Leadership Team Program is off to a strong start! 15 organizations were selected to participate in the program, of which we are one! We are grateful to the anonymous donor at the Manatee Community Foundation who has invested in the achievement building that we get to participate in.

Each organization's team will be equipped with resources to define, track, verify, and report on the results they achieve for those they serve. Their skills will be demonstrated by designing and implementing a project during the 3 month program. More information about the program is available under the resources tab at
