The Safety Net program provides support to foster families in crisis. It addresses urgent needs of foster families to maintain stability for foster children in their care. This support gives the families relief so that children placed with them are not disrupted or moved because of a temporary hardship or necessity.
Kids Charity of Tampa Bay is often the only resource for foster families and children to turn to when they are in distress. Referred through a qualified agency, a "family in need" can receive support for funeral expenses, utilities, home or vehicle repairs, counseling, clothes, shoes, etc., to make certain the foster home remains stabilized to continue to provide a safe place for the foster children
