How You Can Help

Raising and taking care of kids, as you realize, is not s simple task.  The proverb says "It takes a village to raise a child".  In other words, it takes much more than 5 or 10 people to raise these kids.  It takes a village.  That includes everyone.  That includes YOU.  Individual, families, organizations, companies etc.  See Sponsors and Partners.
