Foster care has given me the gift of sharing. The ability to give. Not to give material things or share my cake, but 
to give a young person an opportunity they otherwise may not have had. Being a foster parent has allowed me to provide a child in need, a chance to learn that they can be better than what they may have been taught by their family, or society that they were worth. It means I am responsible for changing someone’s life in a way that could change the world one kind gesture at a time. Some people believe their children are their legacy, and as a person with no biological children, I believe foster care means being the best Mentor I can be, by teaching life skills through experiences, stability, and consistency... fulfilling a purpose that I never thought would be mine until now.

The Families for Astor committee was conceived out of a desire to integrate a family-focused community effort in helping to raise awareness and funds for Astor Services for Children and Families. Children are our greatest investment at every level and having the opportunity to aid such an incredible resource like Astor, in our own backyard is hugely rewarding. As an active volunteer and a donor, I see our contribution make a direct impact on the lives of the residents as well as the thousands of children who benefit from Astor Services. I have incredible experiences interacting directly with the children and am reminded instantly that it is our societal responsibility to foster a healing environment for them. We are humbled by the mission of Astor Services and consider ourselves blessed to be a part of the Astor Family. “I don’t think there is anything more important that we could be doing as a community than serving these children.”

I remember when I first brought my son to Astor and how nervous I felt walking through the hallway. And even more clearly, I remember being welcomed warmly by the staff. But what touched my heart was when the center director and receptionist remembered me from my childhood and my time as an Astor Head Start student. When my son was at Astor I was always encouraged to stay for breakfast, or come early for lunch. With all of the time I spent at Astor volunteering as a parent, it wasn’t long before I was encouraged to apply for a substitute position in the center. The encouragement and support I received through Astor led to my applying for a more permanent part-time position while I attended college. Astor was a safe home for my son, while I worked on bettering myself. Support and encouragement was abundant at Astor. Every person I encountered had a genuine interest in the success of the children and their families. Through hard work, continued support and constant encouragement, I was able to graduate from college, and found myself with a career at Astor as a teacher. “The true joy in working with Astor isn’t just doing something that I love, but knowing how genuinely caring the people around me are. I now share this same passion in my work here.” My greatest hope is to continue to uphold the core values that make Astor the extraordinary place that it is.

Fourteen-year-old Omari, who goes by the nickname OC, began receiving services from Astor’s Transitions Program in January 2014. The Transitions Program is designed to work with children from low-income families who display serious emotional disorders. Through the Transitions Program, OC was successfully referred to mentorship programs, summer camps, and outpatient clinics. OC was also referred to the SYNC Program, which is dedicated to keeping children in their current communities and schools and out of more restrictive home and/or educational environments. The program aided in decreasing his behavioral difficulties. Currently, OC is thriving as evidenced by his transfer from a special education school setting and is now a freshman in a public high school. OC has been able to show increasing control with maintaining positive emotional and behavioral stability.
