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.

When “Justin” found out about the mother/son dance at a school he attends off campus, he felt an overwhelming sense of loneliness. His biological mother recently terminated her parental rights and losing her made Justin feel depressed, rejected, and unworthy of love.

Fortunately, Justin had Residential Supervisor, Ms. Monica, who has cared for him since he very first arrived to St. Joe’s. Taking his hand in hers, Ms. Monica told Justin that even though she’ll never be his real mom, she would always love him for who he is and would gladly take him to the mother/son dance.

Tonight, Ms. Monica and Justin go hand-in-hand to dance the night away like a real family. Because of Ms. Monica’s compassion, Justin feels worthy of love and knows that he is not alone. This is what “Giving Children a Home” really means.
