PROJECT Flip Flop™
Leading up to the last day of school, kids are counting down the days,
but for most foster and homeless kids it's painful.
At school they hear their classmates talking about what they're going to do over the summer - camp, taking swim lessons, going on family vacations... Homeless kids are worried about food and shelter. Group homes can't afford camp or expensive lessons. Precious children dream about having a family that loves them.
Begin with Caring!
Help Foster & Unaccompanied Homeless Kids
start summer feeling
good about their academic accomplishments!
