Eagle Colorado Adoption/Foster Home Needs a Vehicle

Our mission is to help hurting people and animals and provide opportunities for volunteers to do the same while using their gifts and talents to live a life of impact and purpose. We offer a safe place for all to be a part of a family that cares and is making a difference.
We've added fostering and adopting children to our outreach efforts. We are a safe place for little hearts to heal! When Paul and Diane found out that there are approx. 6,800 foster children in Colorado and 550 needing adoption AND that there was not a Foster Home available in Eagle County they immediately made plans to get re-certified, ready to open their hearts and home.  
Duties and Responsibilities  There are nearly half a million young people living in foster care in America. The goal is to return the children to their homes but when that is not possible they need long term care and/or adoption. 
It's been an intense process but the Dikes are ready. Duties include: parental guidance, upkeep of CPR + First Aid training, Love & Logic training, they've passed several background checks, have a bed and dresser for every child; they are prepared for: face to face time with birth parents, addressing medical and dental needs, transportation to and from activities, school, medical or therapeutic appointments, participation in treatment decisions, creating clear and consistent behavioral boundaries, providing financial, emotional and educational support, providing meals, clothing... and a stable, consistent, culturally sensitive and nurturing home environment.
