JumpStart

Children come into our world with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the scars of abuse. In order to just survive the next day, there are certain items the children simply must have. To help “jump start” providing for their immediate needs, the foster family is given $150 per child upon placement to buy the kids clothes for school the next day, pajamas for that night, a toothbrush, a car seat, diapers, etc.

Back to School

A World For Children helps our children not to have to worry about having used school supplies or clothes that other kids will make fun of. They need to be able to start the school year with a fresh start – a new pair of shoes, a first day outfit, and a new binder. At the beginning of each year, we like to give them a little extra boost – $100 toward back-to-school clothes costs and $50 toward back-to-school supplies.

Recreation

Most of the children we serve have never been out of the town in which they were born, much less have stayed at a hotel, visited an amusement park, or even swam in a pool. In an effort to expose our children to a fun-filled summer, we have a Summer Adventure at Fiesta Texas. Every year, we are amazed at the children’s reactions to this event. They have been through so much and deserve to cast their “adult-size” worries aside and just be a child for a day.

Christmas

Many of our children have never had a Merry Christmas. In partnership with our donors, we work to provide these children with what may be their first Christmas experience ever. Each child invited to a Christmas party with children from their region, complete with a meal and a visit from Santa, and each are given at least one $50 gift based on a personal wish list they provide to their case manager, as well as a $50 Wal-Mart gift card provided by AWFC. Christmas costs $150 per child.

Each year, A World for Children hosts a summer camp geared towards engaging, inspiring, and motivating our foster care youth. In the heart of Brownwood, Texas, our teens experience four days of a jam packed schedule including a career fair, interactive games designed to educate youth on financial responsibilities, and many other activities that are both information and fun.
