What We Do to

protect kids

AWARENESS

RAISE

MOBILIZATION

ENABLE

FAMILIES

EMPOWER

Our primary objective is to break down barriers between waiting children and loving families by recruiting, training, and aiding families in the realities of effective fostering and advocacy

BY FOCUSING ON FRONTLINE FAMILIES WE CAN

protect kids

These frontline families are the “cog in the wheel” that makes the fostering or the adoption process work.  They allow for more at-risk children to be rescued from their abusive situations. The SOLUTION for VICTIMIZED KIDS is STRONG, LOVING FAMILIES. Research confirms the power of family in a child’s life. Family is the best place for a child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual development. History tells us that institutional living is inefficient in the care of children. There is nothing like the POWER OF FAMILY! A loving family can change everything for a child!

 

Despite the importance of these frontline families, they remain the most under-supported and overlooked; this is why families who foster or adopt are our focus. Properly training and aiding these families can  IMPACT the most significant number of children and CHANGE the TRAJECTORY of their LIVES!

Share

Together we can bring awareness to the national crisis of child abuse and neglect by promoting and sharing 10.18's #ProtectKids videos, posts, & campaigns. The intent is to inform our micro-communities and spheres of influence of these injustices. Then provide simple ways for the community to engage in service and support of these children thru a community-based response. Because together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of our nation's most vulnerable children.

678,000 REASONS TO HELP

678,000 children are verified as VICTIMS of abuse & neglect each year by Child Protective Services.  Over 78% of these children STAY in their abusive situations, primarily due to a lack of foster families.

To us, that's simply unacceptable. 

Many of our biggest SOCIETAL PROBLEMS stem from the familial cycle of child maltreatment. This IMPACT on our COMMUNITIES is substantial.

Together, we can protect kids through awareness, action, and advocacy.

The orphans and the oppressed will be terrified no longer, for You will bring them justice, and no one will trouble them. Psalms 10.18
