Thank you to Exodus Ranch for inviting us to your!
From Exodus Ranch:
The Exodus Ranch in Douglasville, will be holding our 2nd annual foster fun day! This day is a free day of fun for Foster children and their foster families, in the Douglas, Carroll and Paulding county area! Last year, we had over 300 in attendance! What a great day of fun it was! The children were able to enjoy pony/horse rides, games, bouncy houses, food, story telling and much more! The parents were treated to a day of respite with facials, hair cuts, manicures and a wonderful lunch! A great time was had by all! This day is to let Foster parents know how much we, as a community, appreciate them! It is also a day to love and encourage children who need it so badly.
The United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations – losing on average between four and seven children every day to child abuse and neglect. A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds. The Percentage of children abused, is terrifying!
- Physical Abuse 28.3
- Sexual Abuse 20.7
- Emotional Abuse 10.6
- Physical Neglect 9.9
- Emotional Neglect 14.8
To put this in perspective: This would PACK 10 modern football stadiums…not with cheering fans, but with hurting children in need of love and a family. Many of these children end up in Foster Care. 40% of Foster children end up on the street and many in the sex trafficking industry. 1 in 4 end up in prison. These kids need our love, support and help in healing!
