A message from Bartow County DFCS Social Services Case Manager Kaitlyn Downs; Thank you so much for wanting to give back to the local community! When children are no longer to be in their parent’s home for whatever reason, it is often the most traumatic day of their lives no matter where they end up being moved to, whether it is a relative’s home or a foster home. Often times, these families may not have the immediate, basic needs for kids who just enter their family such as the items listed below. Sometimes, if a child has exceptional needs or is a member of a large sibling group, it takes longer to locate an appropriate resource for them, as we value keeping siblings together and ensuring everyone’s needs will be met. In these events, it’s not uncommon to have some children stay at our office until an appropriate resource is located that can meet the child’s needs. Obviously, kids get hungry and we may not always have food on hand to provide for them at our office, which is why the food gift cards are so helpful to us and the children. Every item on this list is a need for our children and will be greatly appreciated by the department to help ensure that, on likely the hardest day of a child’s life, they are cared about and valued.
