CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR FOSTER FAMILIES TO LAUGH & BOND


FUN and BONDING are two powerful weapons against…

  • Trauma Caused Behaviors – 100% of Foster Kids have been exposed to trauma
  • PTSD – Foster Kids are 2 TIMES MORE LIKELY to suffer from PTSD than military vets who have seen active combat
  • Sexualized Behaviors – As high as 75% of U.S. Foster Kids have been exposed to sexual abuse

How Do Board Games Help?

  • Promote Bonding
    During FUN people tend to let their guards down and more easily connect with others.
  • Encourage Trust
    A natural result of bonding is allowing yourself to trust another person. This is hard for most kids in foster care and a HUGE win when trust is won by a caregiver.
  • Allow Kids to be Kids
    Too many foster kids have had to be the adult and care for themselves. Oddly enough many kids have to be taught how to be kids and just have fun.
