Heart JUNE 2021 MISSION - CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2021 Cards For A Cause
JUNE MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!
---
ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED: For The Sake Of One

DESCRIPTION: (From website) - Vision: We are a ministry seeking to advocate for the foster care community. Mission: It is the mission of For the Sake of One to assist with the reunification of families through five areas -
  1. Maintaining the Blessing Boutique (a resource room for families with open CPS cases). Many times, when children are removed, they are not allowed to take anything with them to their new home. With this resource room, foster parents get essentials to care for a new child.
  2. Encouraging case workers. We hope to decrease the burn-out rate of case workers through encouraging them with prayer and treats.
  3. Mentoring the biological parents. We desire to build relationships with parents who are fighting to get their kids back and help them find the resources they need to meet their goals including resources in our Blessing Boutique and parenting classes.
  4. Recruiting new foster families. At the time of writing this there are 107 children in Miller county and 117 children in Bowie county in foster care. There are only 5 foster homes in Miller County and 15 foster homes in Bowie county. That means that if each home is at max capacity, we can only provide a bed for 40 of the 220 children that are currently in care in the Texarkana area while the others get sent away as far as Fayetteville and Dallas.
  5. Support current foster families. Every other month, we have a Foster Parents’ Night Out. Many foster parents never get a break because of the requirements from the state so we give them a night off. We have monthly support groups for foster and adoptive parents that are hosted by local churches. We also provide school supplies and Christmas presents for all kinship and foster placements from Miller, Bowie, Cass, and Little River counties.
WEBSITE: For The Sake Of One

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED: "Encouragement cards would be amazing. These will mostly be sent to foster/adopt parents, case workers, and biological families. They need encouragement daily!" (quote from Angela)

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS: Christian themes are welcome and envelopes are very much appreciated. No restrictions regarding supplies.

GUIDELINES: Please keep in mind, we are representing SCS by sending our cards each month. Recycling is always good, but only use products on your cards that you would like to receive on cards. Also, our card donations are not tax deductible and it is not required. Please do not ask for a receipt. There have been groups that will send thank you's but the "referred by" person keeps us informed and passes on the thank you's. Most of these organizations are volunteers and spend countless hours helping others, let's help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.

MAILING ADDRESS: Mail cards to....

For The Sake Of One

Default Sayings for Foster / Adoptive Families

If anyone types up their own sayings for cards, here are a few that I've found work well for foster / adoptive parents.

Adopting one child won’t change the world, but for that child, the world will change.

Fostering one child won’t change the world, but for that child, the world will change.

Whoever welcomes one of these little children In my name welcomes me. Mark 9:37

Not by might, nor by power, but my Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts.

Foster care is less about getting a child for your family, and more about giving your family for a child. ~Jason Johnson

Parenthood requires Love … not DNA

You might be temporary in their lives, they might be temporary in yours. But there is nothing temporary about the love or the lesson. ~Tonia Christle

Famlies don’t have to match. You don’t have to look like someone, to love them.

By day the LORD directs His love, at night His song is with me - a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8

Default Question on sending cards

Do we send the cards without filling them out?

Hi Everyone! I'm among the living....still dealing with lots of stuff....but I'm here. Just posted the July cause. Thank you so much for always supporting these causes...and for continuing when I am MIA...and for those who answer questions and keep things going. I'm working at getting life worked back out....so sorry that I've been scarce...but things are turning around. We will have a new cause for August too - working out the details on that one but stay tuned... Hugs to you all!!!!
