Foster Dignity helps to support children and young people for are in the Foster Care system and whose needs exceed what the Foster Care system provides. Sometimes, this includes transportation for a family to engage in treatment with a child who has been placed in residential treatment outside of the region and can't get there (did you know that DCF workers are not allowed to transport parents?); sometimes it is an emergency car repair for an older youth who needs transportation to get to work; sometimes, it is as simple as money for weather appropriate clothing for a sibling group; sometimes, it is providing basic needs such as a backpack, toothbrush and other personal hygiene items; or providing funds for life-changing dental work. Having funds that are flexible to meet the needs of kids when there are no other options is really wonderful and meaningful.
