Providing the “bear” essentials for children entering care.
During the month of August 2019 it came to our attention that the closet at DHR was cluttered, crowded, and not being utilized. With the help of a Serve Project with Church of the Highlands – Huntsville as well as help from Foster Love HSV, MCFAPA was able to renovate the closet into a clean, organized, and usable space. Dubbed “The Den,” this space provides the “bear essentials” needed for children coming into care.
With the roll-out of our KICK Bag program in October 2019, we are able to serve almost every child coming into care since the inception. As of December 19, 2019 we have provided KICK Bags to nearly 50 children entering care.
