Butterfly Haven Helps Children and Families in Foster Care and Crisis

Cool Story - Butterfly Haven Helps Children and Families in Foster Care and Crisis

 

If you’re in foster care and need help or have recently experienced a disaster, you don't have to worry. All you need to do is get in touch with Butterfly Haven. Butterfly Haven works to provide aid to children and families in a foster fare situation or those experiencing any type of plight. As part of their work, Butterfly Haven provides important supplies, such as clothing, food, furniture and hygiene products. The organization also helps children in foster care to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions. Butterfly Haven currently helps those living in the St. Louis metropolitan area, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County. Those who work for Butterfly Haven are those who care about the community and those who live in it. Their mission is #MakingMomentsMatter.

 

Maria A. Larsen is the founder of Butterfly Haven. Before she founded the organization, Maria had been a foster mom for about three years. She noticed that foster families didn't have many resources to help them raise a child. The foster family was expected to provide everything. Maria met other fosters who also wished to have some support in this venture. She created a list of qualified individuals who had experience with foster children. This community of foster families led to the official creation of Butterfly Haven in 2006. Maria also collected donations of items children in foster care needed, and created care bags. Each bag is filled with age appropriate items for each child.  

 

It’s Butterfly Haven’s mission to ensure each child experiencing foster care receives the best treatment possible. As soon as Butterfly Haven is informed of a child about to enter foster care, important preparations are made. A care bag is made up for the child. The contents of the bag will depend on the child’s specific needs and age. The care bag will help to give the child a sense of security and safety. 

 

While fostering a child is a great thing to do, it’s important to be prepared and have the resources you’ll need. Butterfly Haven assists foster families in getting ready so they can take the best care of the child(ren) they’re taking in. One way they will help is through their ReFuel Program. This program gives foster families access to important resources they will need during the fostering process. Butterfly Haven also wants foster children and families to be able to have fun. That’s why they supply chances for a good time, like field trips, birthday parties, potlucks, and Christmas Events. If a family should experience any sort of crisis, Butterfly Haven can help with that, too. They will provide connections to agencies that specialize in handling crisis care cases.  

 

The only reason Butterfly Haven can provide these resources and services is because of the support of their donors. If you want to help Butterfly Haven with their mission, there are several things you can do. You can choose to donate items that the organization will distribute to those in need. Items you can donate include gift cards, hair products, blankets, and non-perishable food. You can also choose to donate money to Butterfly Haven, and there are different amounts you can donate. 100 dollars allows a child in foster care to celebrate their birthday, for example.
