Foster Kids In GA Need Us

$2,030 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 30 months
Jody Sandwick  WHITE PLAINS, GA
In the United States we have 500,00 children in Foster Care who have been abused ,abondoned and severly neglected.  Many have been beaten, starved and have suffered  unimaginable pain that no child should ever have to experience in their young life.

Approximately 1200 of these children in foster care right now come from our community and the surrounding communties in our service area, which is the Department of Children and Family Services Region 5 plus Putnam County.  Each year the number of children continues to rise and yet the number of foster homes have decreased by almost 50% in recent years.  The Department of Children and Family Services simply does no have enough options for alternative housing. Our service area is one of the most desperate areas in Georgia in need of alternative housing for these children who must be removed from their homes.

Circle Ranch was incorporated and became a 501c3 in Jan 2015.  Our Board Member and volunteers worked  feverishly throughout 2015 to introduce Circle Ranch into the community and bring awareness of the desperate need.

We began our fund raising in 2016 and have been very blessed with the support and generosity from so many within the community but we still have a ways to go.

We are presently searching for land that will adaptable for this type of facility.  We hope to purchase approximately 75 acres at an estimated price of $3,000 per acre.  The cost for the land would be $225,000 plus $25,000 for beginning land development.  We must first own the land in order to move forward. Once the land is purchased we will be able to apply for grants to help build the ranch ,also other organization and entities will also be willing to help with the ranch's development.

OUR GOAL FOR 2017 IS TO RAISE THE FUNDS TO PURCHASE  LAND  but we need your help. Won't you please help us acquire this land so we can move toward the reality of being able to give these children a stable loving  family enviroment with unconditional love and a chance to heal and begin to break the
cycles of abandonment, abuse and neglect.

Together we can do this for the children who are in desperate need of our help!

In the United States we have over 500,000 children in Foster Care who have been abused abandoned and neglected. Many have been starved, beaten and suffered unimaginable pain that no child should ever have to experience in their young life.

Approximately 1200 of these children in foster care right now come from our community and the surrounding communities in our service area of 13 counties in rural Georgia. Each year the number of children continues to rise and yet the number of foster homes in own area have declined by almost 50% in recent years. The Department of Children and Family Services simply does no have enough options for alternative housing! Our service area is one of the most desperate areas in Georgia in need of housing for these children who must be removed from their own homes.

The mission for Circle Ranch was incorporated and became a 501c3 and was launched in January 2015. Our Board of Directors and volunteers worked feverishly throughout 2015 to introduce Circle Ranch into the community and bring awareness of this desperate need.

We began our fund raising in 2016 and have been very blessed with the support and generosity from so many individuals but we still have a ways to go.

We are presently searching for land that will be adaptable for this type of facility. We hope to purchase approximately 75 ares at an estimated purchase price of $3,000 per acre. The cost for land would be $225,000 plus $25,000 for beginning land development. We must first have the land in order to move forward with plans to build the ranch. Once the land is purchased we will be able to apply for grants. Other organizations and entities also are willing to help once the land is purchased.

OUR GOAL FOR 2017 IS TO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE LAND but we can not do it without your help. Won't you please help us acquire this land so we can move closer to giving these children a stable lovely family with unconditional love and chance to heal so we can begin to BREAK THE CYCLES OF ABANDONMENT, ABUSE AND NEGLECT.
