‘They treated me like their family, like I was their daughter… It sort of felt like a dream childhood.” – Lisa, former Time for Kids child
The SA government has recently launched Fund My Community, designed to fund organisations that improve the well-being, quality of life and participation of disadvantaged South Australians. This new participatory grant program asks the South Australian community to decide which projects will receive funding by giving everyone who registers with the site $1 million in virtual grant money and then seeing how the money is spent.
Time for Kids has submitted an application to recruit some desperately needed carers for the many children on our waiting list. Our project will fund the recruitment and assessment of volunteer carers for our most vulnerable kids, and help hundreds of children and their families over the many years of children’s placement.
Please click on our dollar button to be taken to the site, and don’t forget to nominate our project, Care for our Kids! Voting closes at 9am Monday 4th May.
Introduce yourself to one of the children we want to help through our Fund My Community project:
‘I remember once asking, “When do we have to stop seeing each other?”, and they’re like, “We don’t ever have to.”… then I realised that it’s just a relationship, family, yeah.’ – Brett, former Time for Kids child
