An impactful way the #LoveUp Foundation helps kids in foster care try to regain this sense of normalcy is by providing extra special experiences to bring joy and positive memories to their childhood.
Life for a child in the foster care system can feel scary and unsettling. Nothing seems normal anymore.
The #LoveUp Foundation believes every child should know what it is like to go to a ballgame, visit a working farm, attend the State Fair, shop for brand new pair of shoes, be a guest at a Christmas party or go to a movie on opening night.
Each year we engage nearly 2,000 foster children in special experiences like these. #LoveUp also works closely with the Arizona Department of Child Safety to support their special events for foster children, with a special focus on helping children nearing age 18 who will soon be aging out of the foster care system.
In 2018, nearly 2,000 foster children will be positively affected by the #LoveUp Foundation.
