[ARCHIVED] Vice Mayor Burgess Honors Our Kids Foundation and Foster Parents who Care for Children

During a special presentation at the August City of Homestead Council meeting, Vice Mayor Jon Burgess honored the foster care non-profit organization Our Kids of Miami-Dade as well as two local parents who have made room in their home and lives for various local children who needed the loving care of a foster family.

“This certificate of appreciation recognizes Our Kids of Miami-Dade in their mission to improve the lives of children in our community by helping them with the foster, adoption, and care services that provide the support they need,” said Vice-Mayor Burgess, who also presented a certificate honoring Adah and William Clark, foster and adoptive parents of various children. “It is truly an honor to commend you for giving so many children in need a warm and loving place to thrive and grow. You are an example for our community.”

After receiving the honor, Mrs. Clark said to the audience: “It is amazing to give your heart and life to the kids. It is such a blessing and powerful experience to give a child a chance. You will always count with the support system of Our Kids of Miami Dade and will never feel alone in your journey to care for the lives of these children in need.”

Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe, Inc. is the lead agency for community-based care responsible for assuming foster care and related child welfare services in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties from the Department of Children and Families, through a network of local, full case management services agencies. The agency provides an array of services including voluntary family services, foster care, residential care, family reunification, mental health services and protective services, and adoption when appropriate.
