Amanda Makes the Team

Amanda Makes the Team

Amanda’s mom abused meth and Child Protective Services removed her after they found Amanda malnourished, neglected and living in a filthy house. She was only four years old.

Your Donations at Work

Amanda was placed at Jonathan’s Place after years of bouncing between foster families, and has lived in our girls residential treatment program since 2012. In August, she tried out for one of her school’s sports teams. She made it! We have been beaming with pride and supporting her at games since!

As with most extra-curricular activities, there are extra costs. Your donations will help us cover those fees – like uniforms, shoes and travel (which are not cheap). Like any loving parent, we never want to be in a situation where we have to say “no” because we can’t afford to support their passion.

It’s particularly difficult knowing their past – these children deserve the best.

Your support makes this all possible. Renew your support today with a secure donation through PayPal.

*We changed Amanda’s name to protect her identity, but her story is true. Thank you for supporting her and the hundreds of children we help care for each year.
