Weissing is an active volunteer with 4KIDS and many years ago he was blessed to have the opportunity to bring a young boy into his life through a foster care situation. “Not only did I fall in love with this boy, but I learned just how much fostering benefits both the foster child and the foster family,” said Weissing
Every day, seven kids in South Florida are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. 4Kids provides both the SafePlace sheltering needed for the child during the initial critical hours after they are taken from their home, but over the course of the last ten years 18,000 children have benefited from the LOVE and HOPE provided by 4Kids.
Weissing Added “Recently our SafePlace 4KIDS in Broward County had eight children there who were under 10 years old and were waiting to be placed in a safe, secure, loving home. Unfortunately, there were no openings – 4Kids has 103 homes in Broward County, but they are all full! It costs about $3,370 to take a family from interest, all the way through training to licensure. Your support will help open more homes for our community’s kids.”
4KIDS of South Florida is a non-profit organization committed to providing a home for every child in crisis. Through a partnership of committed individuals, churches, corporations, and government agencies, 4KIDS has brought HOPE to over 18,000 children in 16 years.
