Not Convinced?

We look at it like this…what does it cost to take care of a child where we live? 

We buy food, pay for heating bills, make sure they are happy, check they have their coat on before leaving the house, celebrate their birthdays, take them to the doctors when they are feeling sick and buy the medicine so they get better, brush their hair, ensure they are safe and kiss them goodnight. 

Our dream is for the children we support to have a care structure around them providing the same level of care that we would for our own children.  Join us in seeing this dream become reality.
