Tell Him He Matters


There are 4,000 temporary orphans in our community and many of them are waiting in the darkness, with no real hope. We can’t show their faces or their names, but their stories are real. They have real potential.

At 4KIDS Night of Advocacy, you will be empowered to impact the lives of children in crisis. Keynote speaker, Jimmy Wayne, understands the difference a person can make in the life of a child.

Today, Jimmy is a singer and author of  New York Times best-seller, Walk to Beautiful. As a youth in foster care, Jimmy was on a path taking him nowhere fast. It took the notice, time, and care of a few individuals to help Jimmy make his dreams a reality.

Jimmy’s story is mirrored in the lives of the kids we serve every day. *Jay spent weeks at SafePlace 4KIDS until he celebrated his 18th birthday. When our team met Jay he was angry and mad at the world, but you believed in Jay’s potential and we moved him into our 4KIDS independent living home. Within days we witnessed a totally new person; happy and smiling. After a week in the house Jay said, “I love these guys, these are my brothers.”

Jay has a place to belong, an identity, and a group of people who love him. Imagine how this will change the course of Jay’s life.

You can radically impact the futures of kids in our backyard. At Night of Advocacy, Jimmy’s story will remind you of every child’s potential.
