Getting a warm personal letter or a care package helps to lift the spirit and remind you that you are loved. We initiated a pen pal program with our children in foster care to help remind them that they are loved and appreciated, too. Volunteers write a note or letter to a child approximately twice monthly and send occasional small care packages in recognition of a birthday or a major holiday to kids who have no visitors or family connections.
If you are a social worker and you know of a child who could benefit from our pen pal program, please let us know here. If you are interested in volunteering your time to write to a child, you may sign up to do so here. Please note that all volunteers are subject to a background check prior to admittance into the program.
