We are sorry to announce that A Child's Embrace has closed. This site remains active for historical purposes only.


One of the greatest gifts is a child's embrace. A child's love and the simple act of a hug is every parent's dream.
Many families are willing to care for children that for one reason or another are not able to live with their biological family members. Often, these families do not have training or knowledge to be able to adequately care for children with emotional or psychological issues or medical special needs. As a result, many children with special care needs are not able to be placed into foster care or receive less than appropriate care.

A Child's Embrace is able to assist in providing foster and potential foster families with training and educational materials that can enhance their ability to care for many of these children. Sometimes helping the family to acquire necessary medical supplies or equipment greatly improves the level of care a child receives, helps the child get to school or improves the child's ability to care for him or herself.
