What does the Department of Human Services say about Champions for Life?
Thank you for making dreams come true for our foster care children! I'm glad that I had the opportunity to come out to camp this year and visit for one day. It was heartwarming to witness the smiles on the faces of the children. It's hard to believe that one short week at camp can make such a difference in how our children feel about themselves and their circumstances.
The camper buddies are wonderful. The caring, kindness and positive reinforcement that your volunteers bestow to the children is truly inspirational and has a huge impact on their self-esteem. This gives them hope during a time in their lives when they are facing staggering challenges and many uncertainties.
The CFL camp experience is more than a week of great memories; it's an experience that aids in the healing and hope for every foster child that attends.
Thank you for recognizing the special needs of these special kids. We look forward to many more years of working with you to coordinate this wonderful opportunity for our foster care children.
