We have an amazing young man who decided to help out the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program by donating go bags. Please see the story.

Today, Toby Robinson came to Alamosa County Department of Human Services to accomplish his Eagle Scout Project. His project was to help out the community in the way he saw fit. He decided to choose the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program as his project in the community to help. He decided to donate 100 backpacks that were filled with comfort objects (stuffed animals and blankets), hygiene sets, activity sets (coloring book, crayons and toy) and a water bottle. Toby gathered all the backpacks and the items thanks to donations from local businesses and community members. He noted he wanted to do this project because he knows how it feels to be in the system and not have belongings of his own. It was amazing to see a youth who has gone through the system decide to give back to the system. The Directors of the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program and the Foster Care Coordinators were deeply touched by his amazing project, it gave those who have been in this line a work quite the feeling to see the youth we help give back to the system. A heartfelt thanks to Toby Robinson for all his hard work and dedication to the San Luis Valley Foster Care Program.

Self-care is one of THE most important parts to fostering!

"When foster parenting becomes too stressful, you, your family, and your foster child will all feel the effects. Thus, one of the most important reminders for you, as a foster parent, is the fact that you need to take care of yourself, physically, mentally, and emotionally... Finding time for you will not be easy, but it is very essential. Make time to do something you enjoy, and that you find relaxing." #CO4Kids #FosterCareMonth

Before I was a foster parent, I had some mixed views about the foster care system. To say that I was unaware and ignorant of what foster care was about is quite the understatement.

Children Are in Need of Families, and You May Be the Perfect Fit

There are many ways to help make a difference, but the most direct and surest way to make a profound, life-changing impact in the life of a child who has experienced abuse or neglect is to adopt a waiting child from the foster care system.
