Loving Our Kids 365, Inc. is a non-profit organization that started as an anti-trauma program for children entering the foster care system. Originally, we began by assembling duffel bags with small tokens of hope, comfort, and appreciation for children to place their belongings. Our goal was to replace the black trash bags with duffle bags. Giving every child a sense of dignity.
Our first year showed great promise and opportunities presented themselves to create impacts and changes within the system itself. Our programs and workshops allow our at-risk youth a chance to become productive and self-sufficient. Allowing them the opportunity to become authors of their own SUCCESS stories.
Loving Our Kids 365 Inc., believe strong families, hard work, and education are the keys to teaching our youth the correct mindsets and helping them create SUCCESSful lives. We strive to improve the home life and lower the recidivism rate of at-risk youth in the Tampa Bay area. Currently, we are piloting several of our workshops with Safe and Sound Hillsborough and looking to work with other organizations in the future.
Loving Our Kids 365, Inc is a 501.c3 non-profit organization founded by Eric Alexander in honor of his wife Christina. As an aged out foster child, Christina experienced these same situations. Wanting to provide some relief to foster kids, together they decided there was something that needed to be done.
Hello, my Name is Christina Alexander and I am a former foster child. My twin sister Nina, and I used to have the indignity of carrying our belongings in trash bags. When I was younger around 12 or 13, I remember going to school in the morning and being called to the office.
My name is Nina and my twin sister, Christina and I were in the foster-care system together. As a former foster child all I can remember is when I was 12, or almost 13 standing in the doorway of my new foster home with everything I owned in a trash bag.
