Changing Corporate Culture:
Caring for Foster Children
October 20, 2021
DELRAY BEACH, FL – Genetics Institute of America believes that it is our responsibility to care for the community we are a part of, and that corporate culture can do more to play a greater role in community solutions. Local communities are suffering and, without support from their businesses, will continue to decline and waste away in paralyzing cycles of homelessness, childhood trauma and hunger. Genetics Institute of America refuses to stand by. We are convinced that we can help contribute to the revitalization of our local community, specifically by supporting charities and initiatives that focus on the individuals and families we serve. This series will delve into the philanthropic efforts of Genetics Institute and how we strive to change lives every single day.
Every child deserves a home. So many are without the loving arms of ones they can call family. There is an invisible crisis happening in your neighborhood right now. Every day, children and teens are removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment, and placed in the foster care system. Typically, half of the kids that come into care on any given day have no trusted relative or friend who can take them in, so they are in desperate need of a loving foster family. When there is no foster family available, kids can be separated from their siblings, sent out of their original county, or placed in shelters. The crisis goes on for young adults who age out of foster care without a family or the life skills to succeed on their own. The cycle continues as young women face unplanned pregnancies without a place of refuge and resources to change their futures.
Since 1997, 4KIDS has been one of the leading foster care agencies in South Florida and the country. 4KIDS exists to bring hope, homes, and healing to kids and families in crisis across South Florida and the Treasure Coast. In partnership with local churches, businesses, and government agencies, 4KIDS is committed to redefining foster care in our community, one child at a time.
Genetics Institute of America’s goal to promote healthy generations of families through genetics aligns perfectly with the goal of 4KIDS and breaking the generational cycle of foster care. Our alignment of missions will better the community of South Florida and communities across the nation. Genetics Institute of America commits to caring about the health of the individual through genetic testing and creating a corporate culture of generosity through partnerships with organizations like 4KIDS.
