SAF Foster Care Christmas appeal 2020


Stretch-A-Family provides therapeutic foster care for children and young people aged 0 to 17 who are not able to live with their biological families due to child protection concerns. We are an independent agency that has been working with vulnerable teens and children in the Inner West of Sydney since 1977. SAF strive for an Australia where all children and young are respected and feel they belong.
We are funded to do our core business by the Department of Communities and Justice, NSW (formerly FACS). This allows us to help give safe and stable homes to over 60 children and young people. What it doesn’t allow us to do is to adequately thank and celebrate our amazing foster carers. There is no foster care without these selfless families and individuals who open their homes and hearts to children and teens who would otherwise have nowhere to go.
This Christmas we are asking individuals and businesses to donate to help us thank and celebrate our amazing foster carers and give quality gifts to both them and the children in their care. 
As a registered charity, all donations to Stretch-A-Family over $2 are fully tax deductible. 
Here are some examples of what your support could provide:
• $100 covers the cost of a gift for one child
• $1000 allows us to purchase Christmas treats for each child our organisation supports
• $7,000 allows us to give every carer household a professional quality gift hamper at Christmas

Help Stretch-A-Family to reach their goal of $7,000
