Support Our Children

Government subsidies help Devereux meet our children’s basic needs—food, clothing, shelter, medicine.  Beyond this, Devereux works hard to provide the extra services that our children need—mental health services, early childhood intervention programs, support groups, one-on-one therapies, caring foster care families and a host of other necessary services. But this leaves few dollars for the extras in life—the extras that make the difference in feeling part of our community, rather than alienated from it.  Below are many opportunities to directly support the needs of children in Devereux’s care throughout the community.
FL Backpack Drive 2013

Backpack & School Supply Drive

Can you remember the smell of crayons and pencils?  That curiously particular scent marked the waning days of summer and the beginning of another year of school.  For most of us, it also meant cooler days, new clothes - possibly the dreaded uniform - and new sneakers, a new lunch box, a new backpack and supplies.  Many of us experience this anticipation without a thought to its costs.  They come to us because we are privileged enough to live with loving, supportive families. 

For Devereux children though, these moments may come at a price they simply cannot afford.  Government subsidies help Devereux meet our children’s basic needs - food, clothing, shelter, medicine.  But this leaves few dollars for the extras in life - the extras that make the difference in feeling part of our community, rather than alienated from it.

It is for these reasons that Devereux Florida seeks your help in providing school supplies to our children. Help make an impact on a child's liffe today, donate here.

Holiday Drive

Every child deserves to experience the wonderful magic of the holidays.  Just imagine how it would feel to have a holiday dinner or open gifts for the first time!  As difficult as it may be to believe, this holiday season will be the first time many of our children will receive a gift and partake in a holiday celebration.  Our children need your support.  Take a moment to make their holiday wishes come true, by purchasing a special gift just for them.

Children's Benefit Fund

Remember your excitement at being asked to the prom?  The dress, the flowers, the fun you knew you would have.  Maybe it was the letter in the mail inviting you to the youth leadership council in Washington, D.C.  All of your hard work in the Young Republicans club had paid off.  Or, perhaps for you, it was the top of the ninth inning, when it dawned on you that your little league baseball team was on its way to the state championship in Tallahassee.

Whatever the event, we all experience moments in our lives that—however they may seem trivial to someone else—become a seminal moment of change in your young life.  It may turn you into a party planner, a senator or a professional baseball player.  Or it may simply extend the horizons of your world just a bit further, helping to shape you as a responsible, productive member of our community.

Many of us experience these moments without a thought to their costs—flowers, airline tickets, baseball uniforms are part of the territory.  They come to us because we are privileged enough to live with loving, supportive families.  We are lucky enough not to have to think about it.  For Devereux Children though, these moments may come at a price they simply cannot afford.  Devereux relies on the support of our community to ensure our children are able to participate in normal life experiences.
