Every child who participates in the 8 week fameKids program receives a Safe Kid Kit.
The kit is a backpack that the fameKids Coordinator customizes for each child according to their personal needs. Many children who participate in fameKids are identified as being marginalized or at risk and often are not living in their own homes. This backpack makes kids feel special and recognized. The backpack contains items such as dental & personal toiletry kits, journal, writing & art materials, a Crisis Contact Card, a Telephone Calling Card for emergency phone calls and much more. In addition the backpack contains seasonal items such as mitts, winter hats & extra socks.
“When I first came to fameKids I was scared and shy but now I’m happy. No one made fun of me. I understand better when my Mother hears her voices.” – fameKid, 9 years old
