….”of the consistent support I receive from the SAFY staff,” Alex Bernal.
….”I always wanted to help kids. If my parents weren’t able to care for me or I couldn’t care for my daughter, I would want someone who could fill the gap with love and nurturing,” Marti Brown.
…”I’m committed to assisting children, families, and team members at SAFY with the best guided practices in mentoring at risk youth and developing long term goals of success,” Tamela Fahie.
…”these are children in the most need, where I can do he most good,” Steve Hamilton.
…”the experience in life with foster care is valuable, foster parents are heroes. Foster parents where invisible caps. Foster parents suit up everyday and show up for our children. Foster children need love, kindness, understanding, wisdom, and patience. Foster children are looking for capes because the capes are invisible, but the parent has arms to hold and comfort each child,” Patricia Jackson.
….”we believe that treatment children are far more likely to be bounced around when they are put in traditional foster home, where specialized training has not been provided to deal with diagnosed children. If my husband and I could just help one treatment child get trough this tough time in their life, then we have been blessed,’ Elena & Russell Milano.
My foster/adoptive child is special because…..
….he has been through so much trauma and he is still the cheerleader of the house,” Eric & Nelson Center.
….he came at the right time for my husband and me. He gave us what we were lacking, a son of our own. We love that he appreciates and loves us,” Jean & Vernon Hix.
….they are so loving and trusting. They brighten or days with their laughter and make us proud of their progress,” Patricia & Robert Garcia.
