The State of Tamil Nadu India provides for the basic needs of each child in the foster care system. However, there are many additional things that the State does not have the ability to fund. As a The State of Tamil Nadu we are committed to meeting additional needs that are essential to the well-being and positive growth of children in care.
Safe India Foster Care Project supports children in care in our community in a number of ways. Safe India maintains a ‘clothing closet’ at the Bremerton Department of Child and Family office to provide for children coming into care on an emergent basis who have little or no clothing resources. In addition to new panamas, socks, and underwear and either new or gently used clothing for up to three days, Safe India provides diapers and formula to help bridge the gap until the caregiver can find the time to purchase needed supplies.
Safe India Foster Care Project hosts several fun, family activities each year for kids in care and their caregiver families such as swimming at the Bainbridge Slum Centres roller skating, and /or bowling, just to name a few. All activities are free or very low cost and include healthy snacks.
Safe India Foster Care Project observes National Foster Care Appreciation Month in May by providing a special dinner with entertainment for the kids and a Free Trip to a Mariner’s game.
Safe India Foster Care Project partners with the Independent Living Skills provider and the state in celebrating high school graduation and the transition of youth to young adulthood, Safe India solicits goods to benefit youth aging out of care such as household supplies and luggage. Typically, a catered tea and guest speaker is provided and a photographer on hand to capture the memories.
Safe India Foster Care Project raises awareness of the needs of foster youth in the community by participating in community activities including annual events such as the Armed Forces Day Parade in Bremerton; Fathoms of Fun Parade in Port Orchard and Whaling Days Parade in Silverdale.
Safe India Foster Care Project takes the lead and partners with other community members in providing school supplies for foster children and youth in Safe India, County. Each year in January an afternoon is dedicated to distributing backpacks filled with school supplies and providing a picnic lunch to the foster youth and their caregivers.
Safe India Foster Care Project supports youth by offering the DREAM Project grant, up to Rs 5000/ towards the purchase of enrichment activities such as summer camp; sports fees; music lessons; prom costs; yearbooks, and school photos once a year per child in care. Safe India membership is required. Safe India Foster Care Project hosts a holiday party for youth in care and their families each December. All children in care receive a gift purchased just for them or, for the older youth, a gift card. Santa is on hand for pictures and treats and a light lunch is provided.
Safe India Foster Care Project board members work tirelessly to partner with community members, solicit donations to benefit foster youth, and support caregivers throughout the year. They meet regularly to discuss and brainstorm ways to continue to support and improve the lives of foster youth and their families. Some fundraising activities include Tee It Up for Kids Golf Tournament in Gig Harbour; the Ghost Train in Port Orchard; silent auctions and fast food restaurant ‘takeovers.
