Beginning a new chapter

I praise your work and that of your organization all the time. I really felt like without your intervention I could have ended up in jail or dead. I feel like I am beginning a new chapter in my life and I am proud of who I am and what I have achieved.

We act as a team

We have seen so many improvements to our system over the years; improvements that have resulted in less children in care which translates to lower numbers of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Working closely with our abuse prevention, foster care and adoption partners, along with our many service providers, we act as a team to achieve our mission.

We wanted to make a difference…

We wanted to make a difference and share the stability of our family with others. We have been foster parents now for eight years and currently have our 24th and 25th foster children in our home.

BFP has been a real blessing…

Our hearts were guided to help children so we became a recently foster family. BFP has been a real blessing to work with in this effort and we appreciate that their hearts are truly dedicated to the kids.
