Read our latest newsletter for a celebration of the newest “forever families” created by our Foster Care and Adoption Program, recent activities our Residential children have participated in, the success of our Child Development Center, and one of our award-winning volunteers.

Celebrating milestones like graduating from school are so important in the lives of St. Joe's kids. Many have either experienced abuse during those pivotal moments or were ignored.

That's why our staff at St. Joe's go above and beyond to make days like graduation, so special. Congrats to all of our 2017 graduates! 👩🏾‍🎓👨🏻‍🎓🎉

Did you know that on average, St. Joe's kids have lived in 12 different places (i.e., foster homes, hospitals, etc.) before they come to live at St. Joe's? That kind of instability leaves our children feeling confused, sad, and lost.

Which is why it was no surprise that our youngest children chose to sing "Lost Boy" by Ruth B. this afternoon during their end of school ceremonies, leaving all those in attendance teary-eyed and inspired.

As 8 year old "Billy" explained, "This song is call 'Lost Boy' and we wanted to sing it to you today because it is very special to us. Our staff sing this song to us before bedtime and it calms us and makes us have better dreams."
