Holiday Celebrations & Gifts for Foster Children in NJ

Our Holiday Celebrations provide opportunities for foster children to connect with other children who share their experiences and “get it,” and in some cases, reunite with siblings placed in separate foster homes.

It's More Than a Party

“My name is Dante and I am 8 years old. My brother’s name is Samuel and he is 6 years old. We went to the holiday party and were so happy that we went. It was so much fun. We got to play with other kids there that do not live with their mom just like us. We took my little sister Althea too. She is only 3 years old. She liked the hot dogs, chips and soda the best. We were so happy that we got to go the party. Thank you.”

Dante, Foster Child

“They were laughing and dancing during the party and I realized I didn’t see foster children and biological children anymore. I saw kids, happy kids, enjoying the holidays. I saw childhood as it was supposed to be – shared with people who love and support one another.”

Maggie, Foster Parent
