Meet Kendra, & Dee, working parents and long-time residents of Bainbridge Island. Ten years ago, Kendra and Dee began fostering childen with the hopes of adopting. Fifty-five placements later, their hearts are full with their four adopted children (Levi, Carlos, Trey and Erin), two foster children (ages two years and newborn), and many other children they've lovingly served over the years. Unfortunately, they are facing a personal housing crisis.

Kendra and Dee recently learned their landlord is preparing to sell the home they've enjoyed and improved for the past fourteen years. Despite a dual income, they can't stretch to afford the current rental market, and don't have the funds for a down payment. They are heartbroken to leave the home where so many sweet memories were made, and they need to act quickly to secure new housing that will enable them to continue fostering (i.e., at least four bedrooms, a yard).

Many people have asked how they can help, so with Kendra and Dee's permission we've created this GoFundMe campaign. We believe so strongly in helping this family, that we're making it our personal mission to help them purchase a permanent home. Let's work together to help this hard-working, giving, couple meet this goal.

The level of care and commitment that Kendra and Dee show their children is astounding. Foster parents must be able to provide a platform of stability, a standard of behavior, and a huge amount of patience, understanding, and love. By supporting Kendra and Dee's commitment to fostering, we're making a big difference right here in our community.

We invite both individuals and organizations to donate. All funds will go directly to Kendra and Dee.

With Gratitude,

Friends of Kendra and Dee

"Hopefully we will create a feeling they carry with them - a feeling from a place of love. I believe we make a difference and provide a safe, loving home to the kids who live with us, and it matters. For some it is just a few days, others, several years. We are blessed to have them and have learned something from each and every one." ~ Kendra
