Parents Helping Parents

Our primary goal for Parents Helping Parents is to get foster/adoptive parents together to create a sense of community among people who have dedicated their lives to fostering and adopting orphans and children in need.  We want you to learn from one another and support one another on your journey.  This group will be self governed by foster/adoptive parents and the goals/agendas for each meeting will be set by the parents.  If you do not yet have a foster placement, we would still like to have you join the tour at the student center.  

Totally FAB Kids Night

While parents have their own meeting, your foster, adoptive and biological kids will have a fun night in the student center.  We know your ability to participate is greatly impacted by your children’s happiness so our primary goal is to create a fun and meaningful two hours for your children.  Activities will be planned for children birth through middle school but high school children are welcome to attend and help out too!  Please register online.

Back to School Supply Drive begins July 23!

Get ready for the Back to School Supply Drive – Begins July 23!

The start of the school year can be expensive and purchasing school supplies may not fit into a family’s budget when they are struggling to provide for basic needs. Quite often, teachers will pay out of their own pockets for the supplies that students need.

RezDowntown has a long-term commitment to Wendell Phillips (now Wendell Phillips at Attucks Elementary School) and we are helping to provide these school supplies.

Pick up a bag in the Sanctuary at 1522 McGee or Connection Point at 1508 Grand starting July 23 to fill with purchased school supplies.

Don’t have time to shop? Simply donate money towards the purchase of items in bulk – $35 is all it takes to get everything a student will need for the year.

Once you fill the bag or write your check, bring them back to Connection Point between July 30 - August 7.
