Welcome to Jewerl Ross's Page

As some of you may know, Kidsave is an organization near and dear to my heart. Through Kidsave’s Weekend Miracles program, I have had the opportunity to get to know a very special young man named Gerado.

Gerado is in foster care and currently living in a group home. I host Gerado in my home least two weekends a month and attend monthly Kidsave-sponsored events with him. During our time, I can lend a listening ear, guide him through life’s big decisions, discuss his academics and future plans and engage in fun activities. Spending time with Gerado and watching him open-up has been a wonderful experience I’d highly recommend.

Kidsave is a passionate group of advocates that make it possible for older, forgotten orphans and foster kids to find a family or a lasting connection to a caring adult. Their unique method of hosting and mentoring gets overlooked children into the public, meeting people and experiencing a family life.

The kids we serve have had childhoods we can’t - and don’t want to - imagine. They live in group homes, orphanages, or with foster families who won't adopt them. Without the opportunity presented by Kidsave’s programs, most will exit government care alone, without a single person they can count on. In the U.S., the outcomes of “public parenting” are no better. Of those who age out of our foster care system annually: 46% do not finish high school; 40% will spend early adulthood on welfare; 25% will become homeless or will be sent to jail within two years of emancipation; and 50% of all female foster youth will become pregnant by age 19. To learn more check out Kidsave's website (link below).

While I will always be by Gerado’s side, he is still looking for a loving, permanent family. If you are interested or know someone who may be interested in learning more about Gerado or any of the other children in the program, please contact me directly.

In addition to advocating for Gerado, I have decided to raise $5,000 for Kidsave. Kidsave needs funds to provide this crucial programming. Without the program, kids like Gerado miss out on wonderful mentoring relationships and potential permanent families. Please consider donating to my fundraising campaign and help me reach my goal of $5,000. Your donation truly has a life-changing impact.


Together we can make a difference!

Sincerely,
Jewerl

Because Every Child Needs a Family.
