Easter Seals UCP North Carolina & Virginia provides a range of services and resources to help children and adults survive personal hardships, receive an education, and participate in their communities. The organization's Therapeutic Family Foster Care & Adoption program places children and adolescents unable to remain in their family homes with professionally trained foster parents, who help them develop positive self-images, independent-living skills, and the ability to resolve conflicts peacefully. The end goal of the program is to safely reunite children with their birth families, or support adoption when reunification is not possible.
Children and adolescents entering Easter Seals UCP's therapeutic-foster-care program come from differing circumstances and life experiences, and many leave their homes with few possessions. The program focuses on giving youth a fresh start both at home and at school, and helps students succeed academically in part by providing them with necessary supplies. Tailored to each child's class needs, school-supplies kits often include new pens, pencils, notebooks, binders, and calculators, among other materials.
