Matt Curtis Real Estate makes generous donation to Kids to Love Child Placing Agency
Today Matt Curtis Real Estate presented the Kids to Love Foundation with another generous gift to directly help children who are in foster care.
The $50,000 investment made in Kids to Love’s Child Placing Agency fulfills a $100,000 commitment made last fall as part of Matt Curtis Real Estate’s Love Thy Neighbor program. The money will be used to hire another case manager in the Kids to Love Child Placing Agency.
“For every 50 homes that our clients buy or sell with us, we’re bringing a child home,” said Matt Curtis. “That matters because every kid matters to us. It’s just really important that every kid have an opportunity to be in a loving home and live the life of their dreams.”
Kids to Love’s Child Placing Agency was established in September 2021 and can train and certify foster families and place children in homes when they enter the foster care system. Kids to Love also recently became a private adoption agency.
“This donation from Matt Curtis Real Estate is a big boost to our efforts to meet the needs of children coming into foster care,” said Kids to Love Founder and CEO Lee Marshall. “The more case managers we have, the more children we can directly impact. We are so thankful that Matt Curtis and his team see the need and want to help in such an incredibly impactful way.”
Last month, Kids to Love broke ground on the Smith Family Wellness Center in honor of Mark C. Smith. The center will be home to the Grant Hill Trauma Team, which is a growing team of therapists that has already begun changing lives with its unique approach to trauma therapy.
Kids to Love’s other programs aim to address all the needs of children in foster care. In addition to Kids to Love’s Child Placing Agency, the Foundation also has several programs to aid children and foster families with everything from toys and clothes to college scholarships.
Kids to Love also operates Davidson Farms, a home for girls, and the Whitaker Cottage Community for young women who have aged out of the foster care system.
