We were blessed and thankful for the continued generosity from the Miami Dolphins, who have included His House in the food relief program, which includes receiving 100 meals per day, Monday-Friday through May of 2021!
Bryanna entered the foster care system along with her six siblings a few years ago after experiencing abuse, neglect, and drug exposure. Despite the odds of success stacked against her, Bryana’s determination for a better future helped her achieve the monumental task of graduating from high school.
This past May, we celebrated many graduations, far more creatively due to current social distancing guidelines. But for most children in foster care, these celebrations are not a reality. The drop-out rates are three times higher than other low-income children, and only 50% reach graduation.
Bryanna beat those odds, and we were blessed to have celebrated her graduation at His House.
Together with her His House family and the help of a dear friend of the organization, we celebrated this great milestone. The festivities included a spectacular graduation parade – by far the best part! She was so grateful that she could not hold back the tears!
Bryanna is now college-bound and despite having the opportunity to attend any state school, she chose to enroll at Miami Dade College to stay close to her siblings; a true testament to the remarkable young person that she is.
During the difficult months of the pandemic, Pablo, a young man still in high school and filled with the spirit of charity, donated, through the Soccer Life Foundation, a non-profit he founded, over 100 Chinese Bento Boxes and 40 soccer balls. His act of charity and kindness made it possible for our kids to enjoy one of their favorite meals and favorite sporting games. We are so grateful!
Health Choice Network immediately put boots to the ground on the onset and throughout the pandemic to help keep our children safe and calm. Donating thousands of dollars’ worth of PPE gear, indoor and outdoor games for children to enjoy while quarantined, gift cards for our Christmas in July campaign as well as continuing to give to our Kids Keeper program on a monthly basis are only a few of the ways HCN has championed children in foster care!
Our faithful friends at Kakes 4 Kids Florida celebrated their 10year anniversary of bringing thousands of smiles to our children by sponsoring monthly birthday wishes for all our kids. We are so blessed and grateful for their time and dedication in helping us achieve our mission! Take a look…
