Sugarloaf to Key West 2018
Saturday, December 15th

Who is ready to walk some miles for Christmas toys for our Monroe County children.

Last year we had an awesome time walking 19 miles from Sugarloaf to Key West and raised over $7000. Several people participated in part of the walk and 23 people completed the whole thing.

You can help make sure every child has a present to open for Christmas. Ask your friends, family and enemies to support your walk by donating a set amount or a per mile amount (ex. $20 for mile you walk).

If walking is not your thing. there will be After Party at the end!!
Please share with anyone interested in participating!!

All proceeds benefit Holiday Helpers of the Florida Keys.
Holiday Helpers is a collaboration of agencies in the Florida Keys providing holiday gifts to children of families who are economically challenged working in the service industry, construction, tourism and water/based economy.

Perfect Parent

A national adoption recruitment campaign—a partnership of the US Children’s Bureau, AdoptUSKids, and the Ad Council—promotes adoption from foster care and raises awareness of the 112,000 children and youth who are waiting to be adopted.

Built around the theme “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” this annual campaign uses humor to illustrate that youth in foster care don’t need perfection; they need the commitment and love a permanent adoptive family can provide.

Become a Foster Family

Foster parents are a unique group of people and have one thing in common: they want to provide children with a temporary supportive home while they are separated from their families.

Wesley House Family Services recruits, trains, and supports foster families for Monroe County children who can no longer remain safely in their own homes and do not have relatives to care for them.

A message to our community and supporters around the state and country

Our children and families throughout the Florida Keys are in desperate need of your help.

Many foster parents, caregivers, adoptive parents, and staff have been displaced from their homes or have lost their homes completely.

There is a need to provide displaced caregivers short-term financial assistance to cover costs incurred not covered by state and federal assistance.

Our foster children have survived abuse, neglect or abandonment, and are now living through a real life nightmare.

The storm has not stopped the child welfare system from its urgent demands. Your financial assistance will go a long way to helping the foster care community provide services to families and help them rebuild and continue to provide the stability these children so desperately need.

Please give whatever you can as every dollar helps!
