WHAT WE DO
Kind Hearts for Kids is dedicated to uplifting vulnerable children and teens in foster, adoptive, and kinship care, including those raised by grandparents. We bring joy through birthday and holiday celebrations, while also building confidence and self-respect through fun events. Our outreach extends to fundraising, raising awareness, and local service projects, ensuring these young lives are embraced with compassion and support. Now offering birthday parties ages 3-18 at the Kind Nest!
Providing birthday parties for children in foster care goes beyond the celebration of their birthdays. It fulfills important emotional, psychological, and social needs that contribute to their overall
well-being and development.
Sense of belonging: Foster children often face feelings of isolation and uncertainty. A birthday party gives them a sense of belonging and knowledge they are part of a community who cares about them.
Celebration and Joy: Birthday parties allow children in care to experience moments of joy, boosting their self-esteem and emotional well-being.
Recognition and Validation: Foster children may have experienced trauma, neglect, or abandonment. A birthday party provides an opportunity to be recognized and validated as an individual deserving of love and attention.
Positive Memories: Positive memories created through birthday parties can counterbalance challenging experiences these children may have faced, serving as a source of comfort and positivity throughout their lives.
Normalcy and Routine: Foster care can disrupt a child's sense of normalcy and routine. A birthday party provides a structured event that mirrors the celebrations their peers might experience, helping them enjoy a typical childhood experience.
Social Skills and Relationships: Birthday parties offer a chance for foster children to interact with peers and caregivers in a relaxed and festive environment. This interaction helps them develop social skills, build relationships, and establish connections that can be crucial for their development.
Emotional Healing: Celebrating their birthdays can be a step toward healing for foster children who have experienced trauma. It provides a chance to create positive associations and memories associated with birthdays.
Empowerment: Planning and participating in their own birthday party empowers foster children by giving them a degree of control and agency over their lives, which can be lacking in other areas of their experiences.
