Will you be our Santa?

Holidays can be stressful under the best of circumstances. Now imagine, you’ve been removed from your parents care and placed in a strange place with peers and staff you don’t know to care for you. We love to be able to show our girls they are loved and not forgotten, especially around the holidays. Thank you for caring!
