Hello Friends and Family!
As our wedding gift, Ariel and I are requesting that you donate to help kids who need our help. One of the strongest values that Ariel and I share is the desire to give back. We are passionate about helping children, and kids in the foster system need all of the help we can give. By donating through this page, you are supporting our vision for our future together, a vision where we help kids all over the world. Thank you for helping us get off to a fantastic start in making a difference!
About A Kid's Place of Tampa Bay:
"A Kid's Place is a unique, state of the art, 60-bed facility for abused, neglected, or abandoned children. Our children range from newborns to kids ready to age out of the foster care system at 18. We've provided a home to over 1,300 children in our nine years of operation and assisted over 550 families. Located on five acres in Brandon, Florida A Kid’s Place has five 3,200 square foot homes on an expansive tree-lined campus that provide a safe, home-like environment in a neighborhood setting. We use a live-in house parent model which provides the children with consistent caregivers and family style living. Together with our community partners, A Kid's Place offers:
- A loving family-like environment
- Coordination of services
- On-site therapy services
- Targeted Case Management to support children and their families
- On-site dental services
- Educational services
- On-site pre-kindergarten and toddler programs
We are able to provide professional services to the children without transporting them off-site and we are the first residential group home in the greater Tampa Bay area to be able to provide this level of global servicing on-site. At A Kid's Place, our goal for each child is to provide an enriching experience that will instill hope, encourage growth, and allow for continued healing in a nurturing environment. We strive to envelop abused, neglected or abandoned kids with love as they navigate the foster care system. Our goal is to be a supportive bridge between where the children came from and where their next best placement will be. This might mean reunification with family, placement with relatives, placement in a private foster home that's suited to the needs of the children, or adoption.
