DescriptionMany of the children who come to Uspiritus are victims of abuse, abandonment or neglect. They are left without a family to call their own. Thus, it is extremely important for these children to get special adult attention. These boys and girls need experiences that restore their confidence and trust in adults. One way to do that is to help them know and feel that they are special by helping them receive as many personalized birthday cards as possible on their birthdays. Those that choose to help will receive a list each month of all boys/girls from Uspiritus with a birthday.
We have a one-year requirement for this to ensure that all of our children receive an equal opportunity to feel special.
DescriptionFriends, co-workers or church groups are invited to plan an activity or theme party for a deserving group of kids. Parties are held on weekday evenings and weekends. Groups plan on-campus activities such as crafts or games for 15 -20 kids. These parties enable our children to interact with positive role models while under the supervision of the Uspiritus staff.
