Emergency / New Placement Gifting Program
Foster children placed in a new foster home arrive with little to nothing but the clothes on their backs. Rose Again Foundation personally shops and provides new clothes, shoes, undergarments, and hygiene items. Within forty-eight to seventy-two hours of application submittal, we arrange delivery. In addition to personalized items, we provide linen, comfort items such as teddy bears or journals, blankets, diapers, and basic everyday essentials. If you would like to help supply these items, please visit our Amazon wish list.
Foster children move around frequently. As a result, they fall behind in school. These frequent moves mean they are not preforming at their grade level and many times have large absence periods. Academic records do not always follow the child, so they are not always placed in a grade-appropriate environment nor are they provided resources to catch up. Rose Again Foundation partners with local community organizations that provide private tutoring. Through the financial support of our generous donors, we are able to pay for private tutoring, enable the children to get caught up academically, and provide the opportunity for them to excel.
Kids Soar Program
Extracurricular Activities provide a healthy outlet for the pain, trauma, and anger foster children carry with them. Rose Again Foundation provides financial assistance for foster children to participate in extracurricular activities including sports, music, arts, S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math), Scouts, Clubs, and day or week camps. These activities provide opportunities for kids to just to be kids, and to relearn healthy relationships with peers and coaches.
Bless the Children
Every Christmas season, Rose Again Foundation hosts the Bless the Children event. This event is a culmination for the families we serve and the amazing volunteers, donors, and partners we work with. Each child in every family submits their list to Santa. “Santas” throughout the community fill those wishes and place them in festive red bags. On the big day, families come collect the gifts, enjoy time with Santa, crafts, fellowship, and more. If you are interested in volunteering or being a Santa, fill out this form and we will match you with a child this coming holiday season.
