Supporting the Foster Care Community

Annie C provides support through trainings, support groups, referral services, and recruitment of families for children who need them.

Our longterm goals are to develop a purposeful, intergenerational neighborhood where young adults and seniors live side by side and engage in mutual support; ensuring that these same individuals will develop healthy, caring relationships. We believe through a supportive neighborhood that incorporates vibrant senior citizens as mentors and community services designed to help all residents, everyone will achieve their maximum potential.

Our Mission

“Every child deserves a champion–an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.”

Rita F. Pierson

“There are no unwanted children. Just unfound families.”

Anonymous

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”

Fred Rogers

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”

Forest E Witcraft

“It takes a village to raise a child.”

African proverb

“For these are all our children. We will all profit by, or pay for, whatever they become.”

James Baldwin

Join us at our First Annual Fundraising Dinner

Annie C is poised to purchase our first multi-family home in 2024! The New Beginnings Project will provide apartments for young adults who have recently left foster care, allowing them a safe, secure place to begin their adult lives.

Won’t you help us close the gap between what we have raised so far ($51K in donations and a $75K grant) and what we hope to raise (additional $50K) so that we can close on a decent home for deserving young adults?
