A big THANK YOU to Sanctum Sanctorum Comics & Oddities for providing FSCA with baskets full of comic books for our youth. These were met with great excitement and enthusiasm by some of our teens. FSCA was able to share the donation with Save our Youth and Partial to Girls.
Every year, FSCA’s Foster Care Program participates in Operation Good Cheer. Operation Good Cheer is a program administered by Child & Family Services of Michigan. The program began in 1971 when a group of donors decided they wanted to buy Christmas gifts for children in foster care, and donors from around Michigan have continued the tradition. In years past, the presents were distributed to the agencies via private planes. This year, due to the pandemic, it was decided that all of the presents would be delivered by semi-truck to decrease exposure. As usual, FSCA Foster Care staff and Breakout staff unloaded the gifts for the children in our foster care program. Now the case managers will distribute them to the children in our program through their foster parents. Thanks to all of the donors and volunteers who make this wonderful program possible!

We are so THANKFUL this year for this amazing family! The Pinson family have so much love to give. The family had already adopted three children out of the foster care system, when this year they added a precious little boy. The family fostered this child during the reunification process, but when he was unable to return home they were eager to adopt him. They work with service providers to make sure all his needs are met, and love and care for him. They exhibit a lot of love, patience, and kindness to all of the children who have come into their family. We are so grateful for this family and families like them who give the children in our care safe, and nurturing homes.
