Children in foster care may live with relatives or unrelated foster parents. They may also live in group homes, residential care facilities, emergency shelters, or independently in a supervised setting. These children and youth are best supported through a continuum of care that provides ongoing services from entry to exit. The following resources provide insight into the various ways Embrace Florida Kids seeks to provide a proper continuum of care.
For information on how to give to Embrace Florida Kids, visit our donate page. We also appreciate Facebook birthday fundraisers for Embrace Florida Kids as well as gifts in memory or honor of a loved one. We are happy to guide you in this process if you need help.
In-person opportunities are limited due to sensitivity, privacy, and safety issues. We do have many community advocates and supporters in our schools and churches who raise funds, collect necessary donations (for our foster families and our teens), and provide tutoring, fellowship, social opportunities, and more. Contact us for suggestions.
We would love the opportunity to share our story! You can help us raise awareness by connecting us with civic clubs, church groups, and other organizations where we might share information on how to become involved. Contact us to arrange for someone to speak to your group.
