On behalf of Tesha's compassionate buyers Karly and Josh Bradbury, we are donating $765 to Office Moms & Dads!
"I am so proud of Office Moms & Dads and the need they fill for kiddos in our PNW communities. By being present with these little ones as they are transitioning into a foster home placement, volunteers create space for them during a time of anxiety. They are beacons of hope to some of the most vulnerable." said Karly. We are so grateful to the Bradbury family for trusting Tesha with their transaction, and for providing us with the opportunity to share our blessings with this under served community with this donation!
About Office Moms & Dads.
Office Moms & Dads was founded in 2013 to respond to the community's need for assistance in making children feel secure and comforted while they are being taken into protective custody. The welfare office visit is a stressful time for both the children and their social workers, and Office Moms & Dads is trying to make that day easier for everyone involved. By providing childcare, they allow the social workers to focus on making sure the child is going to be safe and well cared for in foster care. They also help make sure the child has an easier day, by entertaining, helping with basic needs, or just being there for them.
"The average child can wait in a child welfare office anywhere from three to five hours after being taken into protective custody. Meanwhile, social workers frantically search for a suitable foster home or relative to care for them. The wait after a removal can be one of the most frightening and uncertain times in a child’s life. Our volunteers help alleviate stress on social workers, care for the immediate needs of the child, and serve the foster care community in a tangible way. The time commitment for volunteers is flexible, but the impact is monumental." -officemomsanddads.com/about
