Our agency was founded because of one family's compassion for children. Since 2001 Ready for Life, a private non-profit, faith-based, agency has been committed to providing safe and loving homes for hundreds of children in Northern California. At this site you can learn about our agency, discover how you too may become a certified foster family, make donations, sponsor an agency project, or become an employee with our agency. We appreciate the time you have taken to visit with us, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
It's getting to be that time of year again!
Yes, I'm talking about Christmas! Every year, as an agency, we send out a "Christmas Wish List" to all of our foster childen in placement. We give them a $50 limit and then buy what we can off of their list. Then all the children have something to open for Ready for Life on Christmas morning. I know that Christmas is first and foremost about Jesus' birth, however, I also believe that through loving and caring for these children, we are glorifying the name of Jesus.
This year I am asking if there is anyone that would like to donate any portion of that cost, to go toward the children's gifts. I also try to buy some sort of "thank you" gift for all of our wonderful foster parents who have opended their homes to all of these children in need. So, if you feel yourself wanting to help in some way this Christmas season, here are our needs:
1. Monetary donations (we will give you a receipt so that you can write off the donations for your taxes)
2. Gift cards of $20 to Walmart, Target, Cinemark, In&Out Burgers, Dutch Bro's, Starbucks.
3. New or gently used car seats (check the expiration date to see if they are still good)
Thank you in advanced! Be blessed as you get ready for another wonderful Christmas season!
