Our July Jeans BeCause recipient is Angels’ Arms. Angels’ Arms is dedicated to providing and supporting loving homes for foster children by keeping brothers and sisters together within a nurturing family until a forever home is found.
Although in existence only since 2000, Angels’ Arms has changed the lives of over 500+ children, including over 100 sibling groups, by providing them with a loving home and allowing them to thrive in a happy, functional family setting.
Children entering an Angels’ Arms’ home are met with acceptance and love and immediately learn about their role in their new family. So many foster children don’t know how a family works or what it means to be a family member. But the house parents quickly involve all foster children in activities such as chores, extra-curricular activities, homework, eating together as a family, peaceful problem solving, sharing, and more.
