Renovating the 4Kids Foster Children’s House

We’ve been hard at work putting our sweat and contacts to work renovating the 4Kids house. This house is for foster kids who have aged out of the system at 18. 4Kids provides this home for them as well as training in the basics of taking care of themselves like how to interview for a job, shop and prepare food, manage money, etc.. The “soft landing” from the foster child system helps these young adults get on their feet and sets them up for success.

We removed the old tile, taped and sanded to prepare for painting, demolished the old bathroom vanities, installed ceiling fans and brought in a painter. DREW4Kids 1

“What an incredible blessing the Coconut Creek Rotary Club has been to us in this project. This is just a great example of how a community can come together and do great impactful work. The fact that young ladies who have had to experience some of life’s toughest traumas can now have a place of quality, safety and peace; and realize their value and self-worth while doing life together, is immeasurable.  Looking forward to working together in seeing lives changed. You guys rock.”

until every child has a home…
