OUR MISSION: To support children in foster care who have special needs, to decrease the time they wait for permanent families, and to expand the geographical boundaries in which the best adoptive families may be found.

We want to express our gratitude to the Overland and Rose Hill Relief Society Organizeions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In the past several weeks they have donated over 55 duffel bags for teens as well as many, many items to fill them. Overland Relief Society supplied backpacks for over 22 children who were just beginning the school year.
These items--school supplies, journals, quilts, crocheted afghans, handsmade pillow cases and hygiene supplies--all intended for youth entering foster care in emergency situations--provide a great measure of comfort during family crisis. Each child is able to have the supplies needed for the next school day, as well as a great place to store all their possessions.
Most of these supplies were delivered to local Family and Children's Services offices by SNAPS, where they will be accessible at any hour in which they may be needed. Further supplies have been stocked in the storage closet at our offices, where visiting Wednesday's Child participants receive them during their visits.
La Donne Harris of the Rose Hill Ward also coordinated baked treats by the women of her ward for an adoptive parent conference on Sept. 28th and decorated cakes for two children's special events.
We are so encouraged by the outpouring of love and concern we witness within our community!
