The idea came to life after Debbie Gori’s daughter, a social worker for the Georgia’s DFCS had to pick up children in another state and bring them into the DFCS system for care. They had nothing but a black trash bag for their belongings. This was unacceptable to the DFCS staff member who assisted the 3 siblings, so she purchased items at the airport for overnight essentials and comfort items . Smiles of joy radiated from the children’s faces when they were given these items. They were excited to have something to call their own.
Once Debbie Gori heard this, she knew she had to do something.
On October 2011, we had our 1st fundraiser to begin serving Georgia’s most vulnerable children.
We received our 501(c)(3) status in 2012.
The rest is history!
